More than 100 Chinese companies representing different economic and trade sectors are set to showcase various services and products at the four-day ‘Made in China 2017’ exhibition from Thursday at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre.
Organised by Qatar Chamber, the third instalment of the expo is expected to witness a large turnout from businessmen and investors, Qatar Chamber director-general Saleh bin Hamad al-Sharqi said.
He noted that the exhibition provides an ideal opportunity to inform visitors on the latest Chinese innovations, and explore the building of joint-commercial alliances among Qatari and Chinese companies.
Al-Sharqi also affirmed that the exhibition has attracted a wide range of Chinese companies that are keen on displaying their products in the local market despite the ongoing unjust siege imposed in Qatar.
“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,” al-Sharqi said.
In a statement, Qatar Chamber said ‘Made in China 2017’ aims to enhance cooperation ties among Qatari and Chinese businessmen, maximise Chinese expertise in industry, and create a platform to build trade transactions between both countries.
Stressing the strength of Qatar-China relations, al-Sharqi said Qatar-China relations “witnessed great progress over recent years” and that trade exchange between the two countries reached QR20bn.
“The great participation of Chinese companies reflects their trust in Qatar’s economy in spite of the siege imposed on the country by three Gulf countries,” said al-Sharqi, who assured that the siege failed to create a negative impact on the national economy or the ongoing projects being established to achieve Qatar National Vision 2030.
Al-Sharqi said he expects that the expo will witness the signing of “numerous” commercial transactions between Qatari businessmen and their Chinese counterparts. It also provides a significant opportunity for participating companies to find Qatari agents that could distribute their products in Qatar, he added.
