Qatar Development Bank (QDB) chief executive officer Abdulaziz bin Nasser al-Khalifa has applauded the growing ties between the State of Qatar and Oman, which was put under the spotlight during the ‘Made in Qatar’ edition held in Muscat.
In a press statement issued by Qatar Chamber, al-Khalifa said the exhibition has helped strengthen the co-operation between the two countries.
“The exhibition provides consumers and companies in Oman insight into the different Qatari products and industries. It will also help Qatari companies identify the Omani market and explore viable business opportunities. This will open the way for Qatari businessmen to enter the Omani market and forge partnerships and alliances with Omani counterparts,” al-Khalifa said.
Also, the QDB official said the Qatar-Oman Business Forum, held on the sidelines of the event, serves as an opportunity for businessmen from both the countries to learn about investment opportunities that are available in the Qatari and Omani markets.
“There is a keen desire for both sides to enhance partnership and contribute effectively to the growth of bilateral trade, which has reached greater heights in recent years,” al-Khalifa said.
According to al-Khalifa, QDB’s mission is to support the national industry. He said the exhibition, which was organised amid an unjust economic blockade imposed on Qatar in June 2017, “confirms that the Qatari economy has exceeded the repercussions of this siege.”
Despite the economic blockade, al-Khalifa said, many Qatari companies were able to launch and export various ‘Made in Qatar’ products.
