The launch of Masterpass in Qatar will support the objectives of this vision by offering consumers a quick, safe and convenient payments solution, thereby increasing consumer confidence in digital commerce and accelerating the adoption of electronic payments,” said Pankaj Kathuria, Country Manager, Qatar & Kuwait, Mastercard.
