Qatar Primary Materials Company (QPMC) is supporting the upcoming ‘Made in Qatar 2018’ exhibition as Golden Sponsor, the Qatar Chamber announced on Sunday.
The expo, which will be held from November 5 to 9 in Oman at the Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre, is organised by the Chamber, in co-operation with the Ministry of Energy and Industry and Qatar Development Bank as strategic partner.
With the participation of over 240 Qatari companies, the five-day exhibition aims to promote locally-manufactured products in the Omani market, and to exchange experience between Qatari and Omani firms. It also aims to open new horizons of co-operation between the private sectors of both countries and inform the Omani business community on the Qatari products.
Qatar Chamber director-general Saleh bin Hamad al-Sharqi and QPMC CEO Essa Mohamed Ali Kaldari signed the sponsorship agreement at the Chamber’s headquarters on Sunday.
Kaldari said: “QPMC is pleased to sponsor and take part in the seventh edition of ‘Made in Qatar’, which will be held for the second time outside the country. The expo significantly contributes to promoting the locally made products, and further enhancing the role of industry in the local economy.”
He said the exhibition provides “a brilliant opportunity” that enables the company to showcase its strategic products and future plans for expansion that fulfil the needs of the local market of the primary and raw materials.
Al-Sharqi said the Chamber extends its “deep thanks” to QPMC for sponsoring the upcoming expo as well the previous editions. He praised the key role played by QPMC in fulfilling the demands of the Qatari market in terms of building materials required for the mega projects being implemented in Qatar.
He said organising the expo for the second time outside the country affirms that Qatar’s economy is not affected by the siege and that local companies have “greatly developed.” Al-Sharqi said many factories and manufacturing companies are willing to display their products in the Omani market to open new export destinations.
QPMC was established in 2006 to secure building material supplies to the local market. It owns strategic stockpiles of primary materials in Qatar. It provides integrated solutions in many fields, including port management, logistics and supply, storage, and distribution of primary materials to meet the needs of the preparations for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
