Qatar Today - - AFFAIRS | LOCAL -

Ac­cord­ing to mar­ket ex­perts in the coun­try, hav­ing started sev­eral di­rect ship­ping lines from the newly-opened Ha­mad Port to ma­jor sea ports in In­dia, Pak­istan and Turkey, and nearly a dozen more des­ti­na­tions in the pipeline, Qatar will soon tap the port's ‘re-ex­port­ing po­ten­tial'.

Ran­jeev Menon, Group CEO of GWC, said that Qatar's state-of-the-art port is cer­tainly go­ing to act as a cat­a­lyst to the coun­try's eco­nomic di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion.

“Ha­mad Port's strong ca­pa­bil­i­ties, mod­ern facilities, and ad­vanced sys­tems are lead­ing to position Qatar as a re-ex­port hub in the re­gion, in­creas­ing the vol­ume of trade be­tween Qatar and the rest of the world. The port will al­low pri­vate sec­tor busi­ness­men to in­crease the flow of goods to and from the coun­try, fa­cil­i­tat­ing both trade and ad­vanc­ing en­trepreneur­ship for the savvy trader.”

He added: “Qatar has wit­nessed mul­ti­ple im­prove­ments and in­no­va­tions in this field, some be­ing the PPP projects awarded by the gov­ern­ment. GWC Bu Sulba Ware­hous­ing Park is a suc­cess­ful ex­am­ple of mod­ern gov­ern­ment devel­op­men­tal strate­gies, and pri­vate sec­tor's de­ploy­ing in­ter­na­tional stan­dards and local knowl­edge to its best ap­pli­ca­tion.”
