Qatar is home to 260,000 Filipino expats with many of its entrepreneurs contributing to the nation’s economy. The country is known for its aggressive prioritization of well-being initiatives as it has invested at least $ 6 billion in its healthcare industry since 2017 and has greatly liberalized its business establishment rules thus encouraging more start-ups in support to the nation’s 2030 vision of economic sustainability & diversification.

According to Joseph Timothy Rivera, AFREEQ’s Chairman Emeritus and co-chairman of the event’s organizing committee, it is imperative for every person to first capitalize on his healthy well-being and basic sound financial standing so that we could easily take advantage of more investment opportunities not just in real estate but through other sustainable income-generating instrument henceforth leading to the strategic generation of wealth.

During the sidelines of contract signing ceremonies between AFREEQ and ABESQ Hotel, the appointed hotel venue of the event, Rivera also shared other highlights to the 2-day business conference such as the induction of the incoming officers of AFREEQ led by its 2024 chairperson Ms. Bhem Asperilla of Megaworld International as well as the hosting of the Annual Philippine Gala Night on the evening of the first day 19 January 2024 in partnership with Kulinarya Qatar and the awarding ceremonies of notable Filipino workers in Qatar during the 2nd day 20 January 2024 in collaboration of AKO OFW Inc.
