    Vipul –

    Ambassador of India to Qatar

    It has been a pleasure for me and our Embassy to support and collaborate with Indian Business and Professionals Council (IBPC), Qatar. This is the pre-eminent platform for connecting businessmen and professionals from all parts of India who are currently in Qatar.

    I am happy that over the years IBPC has been instrumental in providing networking opportunities and organizing business events for the benefit of the Indian community. These events and activities have also played a key part in taking forward the trade and investment relations between India and Qatar.

    I convey my best wishes to the Governing Council and Executive Committee as well as all members of IBPC for the future.

    J K Menon

    Chairman (Board of Governors)

    Those individuals leading successful organizations, especially professional bodies, nurse an array of dreams about the future of their forums.
    It is rightly said that dreams are the gateways to a prospective future. Mere dreams do not bring success; success is the result of pragmatic objectives and persuasions. I, like many others, too have set some goals, and look forward to turning some of such thoughts into realistic achievements of IBPC.

    I long to see IBPC as one of the most vibrant and acclaimed organizations of its kind in Qatar, and make it more endearing to those looking at it with a lot of hope and expectations. The prime focus would be to set an agenda that upholds our defined mission and vision to attain our collective goals. I’m sure that IBPC will be the much sought after business platform in the State of Qatar.

    Business is not about trade alone, rather it is an act of fostering healthy human relationships. The State of Qatar is always pursuant to expand its economy, by promoting entrepreneurs in diverse fields of business. In this wake, we need to remind ourselves that better results are possible only through teamwork and collective initiatives.
    The path to success is not failing each other in the race, instead, it is about moving together and lending a helping hand to those in need. Let us all work in unison to deliver the best and to reflect the ethical principles of true business.
    I hereby offer my highest regards for all the upcoming endeavors of this fabulous forum.

    First and foremost, we are a Council dedicated and committed to support our Indian owned and Indian managed Business Community, as well as our most valuable assets – our hardworking Indian Professionals in Qatar.

    As the world’s 6th largest economy by nominal GDP, and the 3rd largest by purchasing power parity (PPP), India shows promise of consistent long-term growth due to its young educated population, corresponding low dependency ratio, healthy savings, best investment rates, increasing globalisation, and rapid integration into the global economy.

    India is the world’s #1 manufacturer of Generic Drugs, #2 globally in food and agricultural production, and #3 in construction and real estate sector. Therefore it is also my honor to represent India in Qatar and showcase the vast opportunities India has to offer.

    My mission and vision is to promote these opportunities, by strengthening Indo-Qatar Trade Relations, by intensifying bilateral Trade and Investments, while looking after the interests of our Indian Business and Professional Community in Qatar, so that we may all benefit from this effort. With these objectives, my Team and I shall strive to make IBPC the most active and the most recognized Trade Council in QATAR.
