Barwa's foundations were laid on 15 November 2005, when it obtained its commercial license. The group's name derives from an important principle in Qatar's commercial heritage - the concept of a reliable and trustworthy agreement or contract. These values form the core of our corporate personality.
Since its establishment, Barwa has proven to be a dynamic and powerful contributor towards the development of Qatar. We seek to contribute to the government's over-arching development plan for Qatar as set out in the Qatar National Vision 2030 which has been launched and is being sponsored by His Highness Sheikh / Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani – The Emir.
