Commercial Bank hosts National Day events


Commercial Bank, Qatar’s first private bank, has officially begun a host of Qatar National Day celebrations with traditional activities honouring Qatari heritage at Commercial Bank Plaza in West Bay.



Commercial Bank board members, CEO Joseph Abraham and the Bank’s executive management started the celebration activities with a tour of heritage zone in the Plaza comprising of Qatari flags, “traditional corners”, and a VIP majlis where cultural activities took place. Commercial Bank board members participated in Al Arda with a traditional folkloric group, who then continued the entertainment with sea songs.

The event concluded with a cake cutting ceremony in the shape of a map of Qatar and group photo with all board members and staff.

Visiting boys and girls from two local schools took part in traditional dancing, and guests and staff alike engaged in traditional cultural activities including historic games, henna design and a photo booth with traditional dress.  A food corner served classic Qatari favourites such as Hariss, Mathrooba, Sago and Nakee.

Away from Commercial Bank Plaza, gifts will be distributed to kids on December 18  at Commercial Bank mall branches and traditional sweets and Arabic coffee served to all customers.
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.”
