He said Manateq is working towards achieving Qatar National Vision 2030 by diversifying industries in the country. “This is how Manateq fits well to complement the objectives of Made in Qatar exhibition,” he added.
The company represents a catalyst for change; a national initiative working to diversify Qatar’s economy through the provision of world-class infrastructures within strategically placed economic zones.
Established in 2011, with His Excellency Sheikh Ahmed Bin Jassim Al Thani, the Minister of Economy and Commerce, as the Chairman, Manateq is positioned as a vital component in achieving the ͚Economic Development͛ pillar of the Qatar National Vision 2030.
It realised that long-term and sustainable economic growth can only be accomplished through a thriving private business sector, capable of competing globally, and that the nation must now think beyond the current upcoming projects, such as the 2022 World Cup, to the establishment of non-oil related industries. To this end, the emphasis is now on the creation of a solid infrastructure in which small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) can prosper and grow.
To ensure this kind of longevity, it is essential that we have the investment, expertise, and entrepreneurial culture necessary. Manateq is therefore mandated to establish a wider range of business sectors in the economy, by developing indigenous enterprises in these sectors whilst also attracting international investment, businesses, and partners.
It works with potential and existing, local and foreign, investors; providing an international gateway for the swift set-up and successful growth of your business in Qatar.
The Free Zones, Logistics Parks, Industrial Zones and Warehousing Parks offer our investors a range of client services, unparalleled interconnectivity, access to GCC and global markets, high quality infrastructure, an easy set-up process, and much more.
Manateq’s vision is to promote economic diversification in investments adding value to Qatar., while its mission is to create a world-class business environment that enables domestic and foreign investors to deliver value added products and services to local, regional and international markets.
