The Qatar Financial Markets Authority has announced that the recently-created March bank holiday would also be observed on Sunday, March 6, 2011, by the Qatar Exchange and financial markets.
Two years ago (2009-09-03), Qatar's Emir, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, had endorsed an earlier cabinet decision No.33 of 2009 (2009-04-16) which created a new annual bank and financial sector holiday on the first Sunday of March.
Recall that, since 2000, the weekends in Qatar are Fridays and Saturdays (1999-09-18).
