The private sector plays an important role in contributing to socio-economic integration between the public and private sectors in the region, an official of Gulf Organisation for Industrial Consulting (Goic) has said.
Goic secretary-general Abdulaziz bin Hamad al-Ageel made the statement after inaugurating the International Exhibition for Wall and Floor Covering Technologies, ‘Covertech 2016’, at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre (DECC) yesterday.
He said Goic has been active in identifying and introducing modern industries and shaping general industrial policies in the Gulf for four decades.
“We are the main sponsor of Covertech for the second consecutive year, and we hope this event will actively contribute to supplying industries in general, and building materials sector in particular with their requirements to respond to the needs of mega-projects preceding Qatar FIFA World Cup 2022.
“We also hope to see this exhibition paving the way for co-operation between interested companies and stakeholders to exchange expertise, conclude deals, build fruitful commercial relations — particularly between local Qatari and Gulf companies on the one hand, and multinationals on the other,” he said.
According to al-Ageel, Goic was capable of asserting its key role in the area of Gulf industrial development as a highly-reputable and competitive expertise hub that is excelling in offering industrial consulting services.
“In fact, Goic provides both industrial and economic public and private sectors with accurate market information, specialised consulting services and appropriate training,” he stressed.
Al-Ageel said Goic actively seeks to support specialised activities, events, and exhibitions aimed at boosting GCC economies. He noted that Goic is also keen to encourage GCC private sector events to promote the industrial sector and industrial co-operation and coordination between GCC countries.
He added that the exhibition would be an opportunity to promote industrial development and commercial co-operation between GCC countries “for the best of our beloved countries in the Arabian Gulf.”
