The third edition of Entrepreneurship in Economic Development (EED) forum, a platform that assesses the role of entrepreneurship in Qatar’s economic development and defines the issues to be addressed to promote entrepreneurship in the Gulf, will be held in Doha on March 7-8, 2016. Held under the patronage of H.E. Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al-Thani, Prime Minister of Qatar, and organized by Qatar University and Qatar Development Bank in partnership with Interactive Business Network, EED aims to deliberate on an action plan to help educational institutions of the region foster entrepreneurship.
