(Posted on Friday, March 4, 2011)

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 (03-Sep-2009), Qatar's Emir, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, had endorsed an earlier cabinet decision No.33 of 2009 (16-Apr-2009) 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 (18-Sep-1999).
