Qatar approves law establishing single regulator

Qatar's emir has eventually given his approval to the regulatory reform which is expected to simplify the slow and complex process of doing business in the country. However, no timetable for the completion of a reform first mooted five years ago was given. According to a central bank spokesman, the law ensures an umbrella body which will regulate banks, financial services and insurance companies and the country's bourse as well as banking, financial and insurance companies licensed by the Qatar Financial Center.
