Ooredoo and QNB have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to promote ICT services in Qatar, and support the development of SMEs across the country.

The agreement aims to bring the companies’ resources together, to offer enterprises access to discounted Ooredoo ICT services, as well as the capital they need to invest and grow their business via QNB.

Working together, Ooredoo and QNB aim to create a one-stop-service for Qatar’s businesses, in line with the 2030 Qatar National Vision of developing a knowledge-based economy.

Yousuf Abdulla Al-Kubaisi, COO, Ooredoo Qatar, said: “It’s always a great day when two Qatari companies can work together to benefit our country, and we’re thrilled that this agreement is in an area we already invest so much into. We have the biggest range of next generation services in Qatar, which is why we are the leading ICT solutions provider. Thanks to this partnership, QNB business customers will be able to take advantage of our solutions at a discounted price, to grow their enterprise and to benefit Qatar.”

Yousef Al Neama, QNB’s GM – group corporate and institutional banking, said: “We believe that this new initiative will create a backbone for business success in Qatar. Working with Ooredoo, we are positive that we can nurture a new wave of businesses, and push forward our goal of being the business bank of choice. Supporting small businesses has always been a priority for us, as we understand today’s SMEs can turn into tomorrow’s corporation with the right tools. We look forward to seeing the positive results of this agreement.”

Today’s MoU is the latest in a long history of collaboration between the two companies as they work together to benefit the people of Qatar. Previous agreements include the launch of the QNB First mobile package, offering communication deals via Ooredoo for QNB First customers, interest free payments on all Ooredoo Shop devices bought with a QNB credit card, and QNB’s contribution in creating the Mobile Money Wallet with Ooredoo.
