Officials of Qatar Chamber and the Austrian Business Agency held a meeting on Thursday to review ways of further strengthening co-operation ties between both sides, it was announced in a statement.
Qatar Chamber first vice-chairman Mohamed bin Towar al-Kuwari and Dr Alejandra Navarro de Chalupa, who represents the ‘Austrian Business Agency – Invest in Austria’ held discussions at the chamber’s headquarters in Doha.
During the meeting, both officials discussed ways to enhance co-operation relations between Qatar and Austria. They also encouraged members of Qatar and Austria’s private sector to explore business and investment opportunities available in both countries.
Al-Kuwari also lauded the outputs that resulted from the Qatar-Austria Business Forum held earlier this month in Vienne. He said the forum affirmed both sides’ interest to strengthen investment and trade co-operation, as well as developing co-operation between Qatari and Austrian businessmen.
The forum also witnessed the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Qatar Chamber and the Austrian Chamber Federation, and between several companies from both sides, al-Kuwari said.
Al-Kuwari said there are many Austrian companies operating in Qatar and a number of Qatari-Austrian companies in many sectors, such as Information Technology (IT), advertising, contracting, and tourism.
He also expressed the chamber’s readiness to co-operate with the ABA in enhancing co-operation relations between business sectors of both sides and identifying investment opportunities available in both Qatar and Austria.
De Chalupa said the visit aims to review co-operation relations between the chamber and agency, and to invite Qatari businessmen to invest in Austria.
She also underscored the importance of holding a joint-workshop that would gather businessmen from both sides to review ways to enhance cooperation and to learn business opportunities available in both countries.
