Doha Exhibition Convention Centre (DECC) is prepared to hold the ‘Made in China 2017’ exhibition on Thursday. Qatar Chamber is organising the four day event for the third consecutive year with the participation of over 100 Chinese companies.
The event is held under the patronage of Prime Minister and Minister of Interior HE Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa al Thani from November 16 to 19.
Qatar Chamber Director General Saleh bin Hamad Al Sharqi said that this year a large turnout is expected, as it provides an ideal opportunity to inform visitors on the latest Chinese innovations, and explore building joint commercial alliances between Qatari and Chinese firms.
He added that many Chinese companies have expressed their interests to display their products in the local market despite blockade.
“Chinese companies are interested to enter the Qatari market through this successful exhibition, which brings together Qatari and Chinese investors under one umbrella. It also enables both sides to address all issues relating to joint investment,”he added.
“The expo aims to enhance cooperation between Qatari and Chinese businessmen, taking advantage of the Chinese expertise in the industry, and would create a platform to build trade transactions between both countries.”
He mentioned about the huge progress in relationship between Qatar and China in recent years with the trading exchange reaching QR20 billion.
“The participation of top Chinese companies reflects their trust in Qatar’s economy despite the siege,” Sharqi pointed out.
“This siege did not make any impact on either the national economy or the ongoing projects being established to achieve the National Vision 2030.”
He also hoped that the event will see signing of several commercial transactions between businessmen of both the countries.
“It also provides a good chance for participating Chinese companies to find Qatari marketing agents to distribute their products in Qatar,” he added.
