The forum was intended to provide a platform for prominent companies from both countries, as well as senior government officials, to explore bilateral trade and development opportunities.
HE the Minister of Commerce and Industry Ali bin Ahmed al-Kuwari joined Sung Yun-mo, South Korean Minister of Energy and Industry, while premier institutions such as Qatar Financial Centre, Qatar Free Zones Authority and Korea Maritime Institute were present at the event. Representatives from both countries presented bilateral investment opportunities.
