A Chinese business delegation has visited various areas in Qatar, including the new Hamad Port and the Umm Al Hould economic zone to explore possible investment opportunities in the country.
The delegation was composed of Linyi City mayor Zhang Shuping, Linyi Trade City director Yao Ming, Linyi government secretary-general Tan Qinggong, Reform and Development Committee director Zhuang Guanghai, and several senior officials and economists.
They were also hosted in a luncheon at the house of Sheikh Thani bin Abdullah al-Thani, and was attended by Sheikh Abdullah bin Thani al-Thani, the Chinese Counsel in Doha, members of the business community, SAK Holding Group CEO Hesham al-Sahtari, and SAK Holding Group deputy CEO Abdul Rahman al-Najjar.
At the new Hamad Port, the delegation met Qatar Ports Management Company (Mawani Qatar) CEO Captain Abdulla al-Khanji, who discussed the facility’s “added value as a modern and advanced outlet.”
“The harbour will activate Qatar’s economic diversification sources and growth, and improve its competitiveness in the region. One of its aims is to turn Qatar into a commercial hub and to realise the specific goals of Qatar National Vision 2030,” he said.
Manateq’s head of Development Affairs and Business Planning, Mohamed Hassan al-Malki, met the delegation during their visit at Umm Al Houl economic zone.
Manateq develops and manages private economic zones in Qatar and other related projects to lay infrastructures based on ISO, and support the growth of the private sector, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), and foreign investments.
Al-Malki said: “Manateq plays an important role in strengthening the economic diversification, growth and competitiveness, and promoting a knowledge economy that will attain economic development goals considered as pillars of Qatar vision.”
