1971 was another auspicious year when Qatar became independent and gained full statehood. During this decade, the government worked to enhance its infrastructure, and began to heavily invest in building a non-oil manufacturing base in order to diversify its interests. Keen to help the government achieve its objectives that would modify it into a modern state, the Darwish group undertook numerous initiatives.
During this period, the group’s services had a positive impact on the lives of every Qatari resident, fostering ambitions of creating substantial community change for all nationals and expatriates. In every sphere of life – economic, cultural and social, the company undertook great strides in improving and benefiting the local community, long before Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) became a common practice in the business world.
