Private sector leader Qatar Chamber has discussed investment opportunities in the tourism sector and jewellery trade with a trade delegation from the Czech Republic in a meeting held in Doha.
During the meeting, the two sides reviewed ways to enhance trade co-operation and discussed investment opportunities in the jewellery sector and introducing the most prominent products of Czech companies in this field.
“Qatar’s private sector and its Czech counterpart have developed economic ties, and the trade exchange between the two countries exceeded $187mn in 2017,” according to Qatar Chamber first vice chairman Mohamed bin Towar al-Kuwari.
He said both countries enjoy “a favourable business environment” for foreign investments, coupled with facilities and government incentives, “which open the way for business sectors to build more mutual economic partnerships and alliances.”
Al-Kuwari said there are many areas for the development of economic co-operation between the two countries, especially in the infrastructure and food sectors. He said the launch of 10 flights a week between Doha and Prague will enhance co-operation in the tourism and investment sectors.
He also stressed that Qatar Chamber encourages the establishment of economic partnerships with the Czech Republic. Al-Kuwari also invited business owners to learn about investment opportunities in a number of important sectors in the Central European country.
Czech ambassador Martin Dvorak said, “The good relations between Qatar and the Czech Republic would contribute to enhancing trade between the private sectors in both countries at all levels.”
He also stressed the interest of Czech businessmen in exploring the business climate in Qatar to establish investments in the Qatari market.
