Issued in 2017, the Second Strategic Plan for Financial Sector Regulation 2017-2022 in Qatar provides the financial community and policymakers in Qatar with a clear roadmap to navigate the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead to 2022. It continues and expands upon the work that began in 2013 with the First Strategic Plan for Financial Sector Regulation 2013-2016.
Qatar’s three financial regulators, the Qatar Central Bank, the Qatar Financial Markets Authority and the Regulatory Authority, share the plan’s mission: to deliver a robust and efficient financial regulatory framework that supports economic prosperity, safeguards financial stability and is aligned with international best practice.
As well as the mission, the shared vision, values and strategic goals underpin a common approach to strengthening the financial sector and fostering strong and stable economic growth over the coming five years. The strategic plan was developed within the context of the overall objectives of both the Second National Development Strategy 2017-2022 and the Qatar National Vision 2030.
The plan’s five strategic goals are: to enhance financial sector regulation and promote regulatory co-operation; to develop financial markets and foster financial innovation; to maintain integrity of, and confidence in, the financial system; to promote financial inclusion; and to develop human capital.
