The Qatari Businessmen Association (QBA) has underscored its interest to study the Portuguese market and the different sectors that offer investment opportunities for foreign investors.
In a meeting yesterday with Portugal’s Prime Minister Antonio Costa, QBA Chairman Sheikh Faisal bin Qassim al-Thani expressed interest in studying the range of investment opportunities available in the southern European country.
“We want the discussions between the two sides to continue after this meeting and we are ready to discuss investment opportunities in sectors such as industry, renewable energy, information technology, and others,” Sheikh Faisal said.
During the meeting, Costa was joined by ambassador Antonio Tanger, Portugal’s Trade and Investment Agency (Aicep) chairman and CEO Luis Castro Henriques, and other members of the Portuguese delegation.
Costa also highlighted the importance of Portugal’s tourism sector and its potential to attract Qatari investments in light of the launching of Qatar Airways direct flights from Doha to Lisbon.
Meanwhile, Henriques presented investment projects in Portugal’s real estate sector, including historical sites considered as among Portugal’s tourist destinations. He also discussed urban development projects along river banks and the establishment of residential and tourist complexes.
QBA’s first deputy chairman Hussein Alfardan emphasised on the interest of Qatar’s private sector in exploring investment opportunities in the local, regional, and global markets.
He also encouraged Portuguese businessmen to study the Qatari market, adding that the Qatari private sector “is willing to enter into partnerships with their counterparts and achieve mutual benefit.”
Aside QBA board member Sherida al-Kaabi and QBA members Khaled al-Mannai, Saud al-Mana, Sheikh Nasser bin Nawaf al-Thani, Hamad bin Ali al-Hedfa, and QBA deputy general manager Sarah Abdallah also attended the meeting.
