Qatar Chamber held a meeting with a delegation from the World Energy Cities Partnership (WECP), headed by Mike Savage, Mayor of Halifax, Canada.
The two sides discussed ways to enhance cooperation in areas of mutual interest.
QC vice chairman Mohammed bin Ahmed bin Twar said Qatar is moving steadily towards the objectives of its National Vision 2030 to consolidate the foundations of sustainable development in all sectors.
He said many of the projects in the country meet the international environmental standards and the preservation of environment has attracted the attention of the Qatari private sector.
On his turn, Savage stressed the importance of the organisation to enhance cooperation with member cities in the fields of innovation in the energy sector, and diversity and cultural learning and exchange.
He reviewed the latest achievements and programmes of the organisation and future goals and strategic plans.
Savage pointed out that the delegation’s visit to Doha aims to enhance relations with Qatar in the areas of energy and scientific and cultural research, and reaffirms the value of Doha’s membership of the organisation.
The World Energy Cities Partnership is an international alliance of 20 major energy cities, including Doha, Houston, Halifax, Calgary, St Johns of Canada, Rio de Janeiro and Cape Town.
