Over the past two months, close to 50 companies have chosen the QFC platform to run their business in Qatar. These companies represent diverse industries, further propelling our efforts to boost Qatar's economic diversification agenda.
At the QFC, we place utmost importance on strengthening our foundation for expansion and innovation in order to continuously refine the value we offer our clients and augment our contribution to the progress of Qatar's financial industry and overall economic growth.
One significant testament to our efforts is the notable growth in our social media engagement. Our online presence has played a pivotal role in serving and engaging our stakeholders while providing valuable insights into doing business in the Qatari market. I'm delighted to witness a surge of 26.9 per cent in our social media engagement across all platforms in July and August compared to the previous reporting period. Additionally, our social media video views increased by 27.1 per cent.
Beyond the digital realm, we have dedicated substantial resources to develop a ground-breaking initiative poised to integrate state-of-the-art digital solutions into the Qatari market. This forthcoming initiative is set to deliver unparalleled value not only in the financial services industry but across all sectors, fostering further economic development.
Finally, I would like to highlight the appointment of Aisha Abdulaziz Al Fuhaid as our new Marketing Manager. The vertical move of Aisha, a long-time member of our team, demonstrates the QFC's commitment to nurturing talent and creating growth opportunities for all our employees.
Thank you all for your unwavering dedication and tireless efforts, which comprise the driving force behind our success. Let us eagerly anticipate the opportunities that the coming months will bring.
