The chamber’s measures include plans that allow employees to work online from home through electronic systems as a way to assure their health and safety, says Qatar Chamber director general Saleh bin Hamad al-Sharqi

Qatar Chamber urged its members yesterday to abide by the instructions issued by authorities in the country. This is in line with the State’s efforts to curb the outbreak of Covid-19, according to a statement.
The chamber also asked all members, especially export companies, to take advantage of the online services offered by Qatar Chamber, such as online Certificate of Origin (COO). The system was launched last year after Qatar joined 23 other countries that use standards of the International Chamber of Commerce in issuing COOs.
Qatar Chamber director general Saleh bin Hamad al-Sharqi said the chamber has adopted several measures corresponding with the State’s efforts and procedures to curb the outbreak of the coronavirus.
“The chamber’s measures include plans that allow employees to work online from home through our electronic systems as a way to assure their health and safety. 
The chamber also allocated hotlines to answer any inquiries from merchants and businessmen on 44559122, sectorial committees (44559187), media (44555803), member’s affairs, certificates of origin and certifications (44559118),” he said.
Al-Sharqi also noted that the chamber’s management holds daily meetings with employees to ensure the progress of work in accordance with these plans. He said the chamber continues to provide services to all members and traders to avoid disrupting their businesses. He also noted that the chamber is currently preparing a comprehensive plan “to offer all services online.”
He said the online system allows businessmen to accomplish their transactions from office without the need to visit the chamber’s venue. 
Al-Sharqi also stressed that the chamber’s sectorial committees are holding meetings to address all issues related to economic sectors to minimise negative impacts of Covid-19 on these sectors.
