As we enter 2023, GWC has a lot to look back on, through the successes we achieved, the challenges we overcame and the lesson we learnt.
The sporting world witnessed a spectacular FIFA World Cup just a few months ago and GWC’s team was at the heart of it. As a company that is always growing and evolving, managing an event such as the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM was only possible when people with diverse skill sets combined forces to overcome multifaceted challenges in a timely and efficient manner.
For the past decade, GWC worked meticulously to put together a plan for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM , fully cognizant of the responsibility that was given to us, what this mega sporting event meant for the nation and the impetus it will give to the economy.
It gives me immense pride to witness our journey for the seamless and efficient delivery of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM . It was a complex logistical mandate with no room for error, but we put together an exceptional experience for the players, the audience and the organizers.
The resounding success of this mega-event has laid the foundation for Qatar to host such events in the future with ease and confidence. Here, GWC had a big role to play in it. These events will also translate into economic opportunities for the country, especially micro, small and medium scale enterprises (MSMEs).
GWC remains dedicated to supporting and developing MSMEs, as part of the Qatar National Vision 2030’s objectives for diversification and sustainability of the economy, and strengthening their contribution to the country’s growth and development.
We, as always, will provide the necessary ecosystem for businesses to flourish and offer innovative solutions to Qatar’s dynamic economic landscape.
Besides the World Cup, through our other projects we have further cemented our position as one of the pioneer logistics firms in the region and globally. Whether it is forging new strategic partnerships or transporting rare Pandas (Suhail and Thuraya) from China, we have covered the gamut of niche services and grown richer by these experiences.
As we begin 2023, I look forward to what exciting opportunities this year will bring and I am sure GWC will rise to the challenges, overcome them and emerge stronger.
As always, whatever we have achieved so far would not have been possible without the guidance of His Highness the Emir, H.E. the Prime Minister, and H.E. the Minister of Commerce and Industry, who have given us their continued leadership and support. I also thank the Board of Directors, management, and staff of GWC, and our faithful shareholders and clients, for their exceptional contribution and trust in GWC.
