Gulf Times Business - - BUSINESS -

Mem­bers of the Qatari-Omani Busi­ness Coun­cil dis­cussed ways of de­vel­op­ing joint co-op­er­a­tion be­tween Qatari and Omani busi­ness­men and re­viewed the mech­a­nisms of com­mu­ni­ca­tion to over­come ob­sta­cles that may face in­vestors on both sides.

The meet­ing was held on the side­lines of the ‘Made in Qatar’ ex­hi­bi­tion in Mus­cat, Oman, where the two par­ties agreed to ap­point a point of com­mu­ni­ca­tion on each side. The meet­ing will be held on a reg­u­lar ba­sis and re­viewed the in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able in the Sul­tanate of Oman in the food and man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tors.

Vice-chair­man of Qatar’s Cham­ber of Com­merce Mo­hammed bin Ahmed bin Towar, who also heads the Qatari side in the coun­cil, said that eco­nomic re­la­tions be­tween the pri­vate sec­tor in the two broth­erly coun­tries are wit­ness­ing re­mark­able growth at all lev­els. He added that his­tor­i­cal ties be­tween the two coun­tries have been a ma­jor sup­porter of strong eco­nomic and trade co­op­er­a­tion in light of es­tab­lish­ing a link be­tween Ha­mad Port and the ports of Salalah and So­har.

He also called on Omani busi­ness­men to in­crease their in­vest­ments and busi­ness in Qatar, in or­der to ben­e­fit from the at­trac­tive in­vest­ment cli­mate. He noted that hold­ing the ‘Made in Qatar’ ex­hi­bi­tion in Mus­cat aims to pro­mote the Qatari in­dus­try among Omani in­vestors. The vice-chair­man said that Qatar Cham­ber was ready to sup­port any Omani in­vestor wish­ing to es­tab­lish busi­ness in Qatar by pro­vid­ing the nec­es­sary data and in­for­ma­tion.

Head of the Omani side at the Coun­cil Mah­moud bin Mo­hamed bin Ali al-Jar­wani said that the Coun­cil will work to strengthen com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween busi­ness­men in the two broth­erly coun­tries, en­cour­age them to en­ter the avail­able in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties, and sup­port the in­crease in the vol­ume of trade ex­change and find mech­a­nisms to over­come the chal­lenges. He said that the Made in Qatar ex­hi­bi­tion in Mus­cat is an op­por­tu­nity to bring to­gether busi­ness own­ers from the two coun­tries, learn about the lat­est pro­jects in the in­dus­trial sec­tor and con­clude con­tracts and deals that ben­e­fit the Qatari and Omani economies.
