Officials of Qatar Chamber and the Kenyan Ministry of Industrialisation, Trade and Enterprise Development held a meeting in Doha to discuss investment opportunities in Kenya’s agriculture, industry, and infrastructure sectors.
Qatar Chamber first vice chairman Mohamed bin Towar al-Kuwari and Minister Lawrence Karanja held discussions at the chamber’s headquarters in the presence of Kenya’s deputy head of mission to Qatar, Washington A Oloo.
Aside from investment opportunities, both officials also discussed economic and commercial relations between Qatar and Kenya and ways to enhance them, as well as areas of co-operation between the Qatari and Kenyan private sector.
The minister praised the relations between Kenya and the State of Qatar, and called on Qatari investors to invest in Kenya, which, he said, “is rife with opportunities in most sectors.”
Karanja also said both countries “own tremendous potentials” that stimulate fruitful co-operation, citing the possibility of organising a business forum that brings together Qatari and Kenyan businessmen to discuss ways of boosting co-operation and establishing partnerships for the advantage of both countries’ economies.
Al-Kuwari, for his part, stressed that Qatar Chamber supports and encourages the bolstering of co-operation between companies from both countries and the forging of alliances in various sectors, such as agriculture and food security, especially since the State of Qatar places great importance on food security and strives to develop it in line with the developments that the state is witnessing.
