Private sector leader Qatar Chamber has encouraged businessmen in the country to explore investment opportunities Kenya is offering in the fields of agriculture, industry, and oil and gas, among others.
Qatar Chamber first vice-chairman Mohamed bin Towar al-Kuwari made the call during a meeting held on Monday with a Kenyan trade delegation led by Frontier Counties Development Council (FCDC) CEO Mohamed Guleid.
During the meeting, where the two officials discussed ways to enhance bilateral relations, al-Kuwari described Africa as “the future of investments,” adding that East Africa “is an important market for Qatar as it is full of enormous potential and attractive investment opportunities.”
The Qatar Chamber official also lauded members of the Kenyan expatriate community in Qatar, saying they are “qualified” and “characterised by quality and respect.”
For his part, Guleid said the objective of the visit is to discuss preparations for the visit of eight governors from Kenya’s northern governorates to Qatar this year, which aims to build partnership and bolster co-operations with the state in all investment and development areas.
Guleid called on Qatari businessmen to visit Kenya and explore investment opportunities in livestock, agriculture, tourism, energy, and mining, as well as other sectors, and to establish joint partnerships with their Kenyan counterparts.
He praised Qatar’s robust economy and the state’s ability to overcome challenges. He said Qatar’s display of resiliency “will have significant contributions and achievements all over the world.”
