Quid Pro Quo (QPQ) International, an innovative networking platform embraces three biggest trends of the future – sharing economy, Artificial Intelligence and blockchain principles
Dubai, UAE, 24th April 2018: QPQ International, an innovative online networking platform that embraces three of the biggest trends of the future including sharing economy, artificial intelligence and blockchain principles would be launching in the UAE this week.
The state-of-the-art platform will cater to established business owners, entrepreneurs, SME’s, influencers and high-net worth individuals, to help them network and collaborate on investments, projects, and grow their business in a safe, secure and trusted environment.
The new business referral network is the result of research and development by serial entrepreneur, Oksana Tashakova, who is also the founder of Wealth Dynamics Unlimited, a premier entrepreneurship education company. QPQ has been Co-Founded by Omair Saoud Arar Al Dhaheri, who has spent 22 years as Director of Real Estate at the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA), Chairman of Bin Arar Holding & Midein Energy of the UAE along with Global Strategic Partner Jason Michaud, who is also a partner at Canada-based Luiza Artificial Intelligence Technologies.
Ahead of the official launch of the platform, Oksana Tashakova, Co-founder of QPQ said: “In today’s world, networking is a necessity. A mountain of research shows that professional networks lead to more job and business opportunities, broader and deeper knowledge, improved capacity to innovate, faster advancement, and greater status and authority.
“Consumer behavior is evolving at a faster pace than many businesses can cope with. Traditional firms of all sectors are failing to deliver what their customers want and expect in the digital age. And, for those that fail to keep up, the impact can be substantial, which is why we find more businesses adopting technology as a key differentiator. QPQ has been launched to support this trend so that local companies don’t succumb to the pressure and remain at the forefront of this information technology revolution,” she further added.
According to the World Bank, growth in MENA is projected to increase from 2.1% to 3% and 3.4% in 2018 and 2019, respectively. However, prospects for better economic activity in this region will hinge on geopolitical developments and the dynamics of oil prices on global markets.
Commenting on the economic outlook for the MENA region, Omar Saoud Arar Al Dhaheri, Chairman & Co-Founder at QPQ said: “Businesses have seen high levels of optimism in the first quarter of 2018 despite the implementation of VAT earlier this year.
“This is a testament to the fact that the region is seeing stronger support from the government in terms of spending, with investments across all sectors mainly in the construction and travel and tourism sector, ahead of the Expo 2020. Through QPQ we are mainly supporting the government’s vision to create a stable and sustainable economy in the region and trying to create an ecosystem for entrepreneurs and business owners to give them the best chance to succeed,” added Al Dhaheri.
“We are establishing the network worldwide and will be bringing best projects and investment opportunities as well as investors from all parts of the world to our platform and hence to our members. And we also have an Elite Services section wherein we understand projects, needs and goals of our Elite members and bring them solution and opportunities according to their needs,” further elaborated Dhaheri.
According to a research report published by PwC Middle East and titled, the potential impact of AI in the Middle East, AI is expected to contribute US$320 billion to the Middle East economy by 2030 – the equivalent to 11% of GDP. Further reports state that the greatest gains from AI are likely to be in UAE (contribution of up to 13.6% GDP in 2030) and KSA (12.4%).
Commenting on the impact of AI, Jason Michaud, Global Strategic Partner at QPQ, Partner at Canada-based Luiza Artificial Intelligence Technologies said: “These findings are evident that AI is going to be a big game changer in the global economy. Keeping this in mind, we’ve incorporated AI technology into QPQ to accelerate the process of connecting our members to key projects, investors and suppliers worldwide. QPQ is the only platform to incorporate this and we’re sure it will give our members unprecedented competitive advantage and earning capacity by bringing them the best opportunities worldwide,” added Michaud.
