Officials from Qatar Chamber and Cuba held a meeting yesterday to explore co-operation opportunities in the field of agricultural production.
Qatar Chamber first vice chairman Mohamed bin Towar al-Kuwari and Cuba’s Deputy Minister of Agriculture Hechavarria Bermudez held the meeting at the Qatar Chamber headquarters in Doha.
The meeting, which was attended by Qatar Chamber board member Mohamed bin Ahmad al-Obaidli, touched on trade and economic relations between Qatar and Cuba, ways to enhance co-operation between the private sector, and exploring investment opportunities in Cuba’s agricultural sector.
Al-Kuwari said the chamber is keen on promoting relations between Qatari business owners and their counterparts from all over the world. He noted that both countries’ relations are “good and the leadership in both sides is interested to develop such relations.”
Food security is a priority to Qatar and the private sector is eager to learn about business opportunities in Cuba in agricultural and livestock production, al-Kuwari pointed out.
He stressed Qatar’s efforts to achieve self-sufficiency and underlined the chamber’s preparedness to promote opportunities offered by the visiting delegation before the Qatari business community.
Bermudez said Cuba and Qatar enjoy historic co-operation relations, noting that the objective of the visit was to inform Qatar on Cuba’s investment climate and sectors in which Qatari investors could explore.
He noted that both sides have many successful partnerships in several fields, including the health sector. He pointed out that there are many promising sectors in Cuba, such as agriculture, tourism, livestock, technology, and construction.
The deputy minister invited Qatari businessmen to his country and identify available opportunities, as well as to meet with Cuban companies and discuss potential joint ventures. Al-Obaidli said Qatar has managed to achieve “great development” in the agricultural sector to achieve self-sufficiency. He affirmed that both sides could co-operate in producing coffee and livestock feeds.
