The pri­vate sec­tors in Iran and Qatar have been urged to ac­tively in­vest in Bushehr's FTZ project as well as its linkage to Qatar's Al Ruwais port, whose in­stalled ca­pac­ity is 20,000 tonnes, and in the busi­nesses gen­er­ated there­after. The Qatar Cham­ber has urged the Qatari govern­ment to help it set up a QR150 mil­lion com­pany that would in­vest in the above projects. Iran has said it has al­ready cre­ated an al­liance of pri­vate busi­nesses to make in­vest­ments in the FTZ and its linkage to Al Ruwais port projects and the busi­nesses to be lo­cated in the FTZ. The idea is to im­port canned and fresh food, in­clud­ing vegeta­bles and fruits, con­struc­tion ma­te­ri­als as well as ex­change tech­ni­cal ser­vices be­tween Iran and Qatar. Iran is ready to pro­vide ware­hous­ing fa­cil­i­ties on a large scale for agri­cul­ture and in­dus­trial pur­poses.
