It also demonstrates our core values of putting our customers, partners and community first.”

Khaled Hasan followed, praising the contribution of Jaidah Automotive IAM to the wider group and thanking customers. He said, “As Jaidah Automotive’s most profitable section, Jaidah have been the sole macro-distributors of the Shell Lubricant range across Qatar for over 40 years.
