Private sector leader Qatar Chamber and an Iraqi trade delegation held a meeting recently in Doha to discuss ways to boost joint economic and trade co-operation, it was announced on Saturday.
Qatar Chamber chairman Sheikh Khalifa bin Jassim bin Mohamed al-Thani met the delegation from Iraq led by Dr Ali Farhan, the governor of Anbar Province. Sheikh Khalifa said the Chamber is keen to strengthen co-operation relations between the two countries.
He pointed out that the Iraqi province of Anbar has investment opportunities “that will be studied by Qatari businessmen.”
He said Qatar Chamber would host a joint meeting of Qatari businessmen and their counterparts from Al Anbar Province, and invite the Iraqi side to organise a visit to Qatar to discuss issues related to enhancing trade and investment co-operation and to view the investment opportunities available in both countries.
During the meeting, Farhan discussed the advantages and investment opportunities in the province, which is a gateway to the markets of Jordan, Syria, and the Gulf region. He said Qatari investments in the province “will strengthen the brotherly and historical ties between Qatar and Iraq.”
He said many investment opportunities are available to Qatari businessmen in areas such as phosphate, raw materials, and metals, as well as a promising investment opportunity at Habbaniyah Airport.
