Qatar: Tamim Bin Hamad’s new economic adviser
Emi Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani has appointed former economy and commerce minister Sheikh Ahmed Bin Jassim Bin Mohammed Al-Thani as an adviser on economic affairs, via an Emiri order issued on 8 June. Sheikh Ahmed is also a former director general of the Al Jazeera Media Group. He was handed the role of economy and commerce minister soon after Tamim took power in 2013 and remained in that post until 2018, when Ali Bin Ahmed Al-Kuwari took over at the newly created Ministry of Commerce and Industry.
