Abraham said: “We are very proud to be a home-grown Qatari bank and expressing our national pride on National Day is a matter of great joy for all of us. Commercial Bank’s goal is to be the Qatari bank of choice for everyone.
This, coupled with our Qatari heritage of over forty years means that Qatar National Day has great significance and meaning to us as an organisation. Commercial Bank is celebrating National Day this year by hosting a range of traditional Qatari activities which are vital to maintain and cherish as a link to our past and we also take the time on this glorious day to look forward to a bright and prosperous future under the wise leadership of the Emir HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.”
