Close on the heels of Qatar outlining multi-billion dollar business opportunities, Doha will play host next month for an international meeting ‘Back 2 Business Winter’ wherein the country’s investment potentialities, particularly within the small and medium enterprises (SMEs), will be showcased.

Supported by the Italian Chamber of Commerce, AHK German Industry and Commerce, Turkish Businessmen Association, the American Chamber of Commerce, Spanish Business Council and Qatari Businessmen Association, the third edition of the meeting will take place on March 6 at the Westin Doha Hotel and Spa.

In the recent decades, with the globalisation of the market place, an increasing number of SMEs have chosen to internationalise, seeking new opportunities and Qatar has been one of the most popular markets, said Italian Chamber chairperson Maria Palma Libotte.

The event is expected to attract more than 300 professionals from various business sectors operating in Doha and it represents a great opportunity for businessmen to network and share information on the Qatari market.

The Qatar Free Zones Authority will be the strategic partner for this edition.

“In the last couple of years, we have been witnessing our companies venturing together with their partners in various projects in agribusiness, manufacturing and retail; expanding their fields of operation,” according to Burak Guresci, Commercial Attache, Turkish embassy.

Daniel Schemske, deputy head of mission, German Embassy, said despite the challenging regional and global economic environment, the Qatari economy has been growing at a remarkable pace and business opportunities are plenty.

The event “is an outstanding occasion for German business representatives to meet and partner up with their Qatari and international peers in order to effectively contribute to implementing Qatar National Vision 2030 and to the preparations for the 2022 FIFA World Cup,” he said.

Stressing that Italy and its businesses are keen on networking with local and international partners to develop new trade and investment opportunities, Carlotta Colli, deputy head of mission, Italian embassy, said Qatar is rapidly becoming a new international destination for major events and there is a need to tap the potential for foreign investors in emerging sectors as agro-food, tourism, hospitality and sports industry.
