Choosing Oman as the venue for the next Made in Qatar exhibition reflects the magnitude of the business relations between the two countries, said Qatar Chamber (QC) Chairman Sheikh Khalifa bin Jassim bin Mohammed al Thani.
The move would augment communication and collaborations between Qatari and Omani merchants and producers, he added.
By organising the exhibition in Oman, he said, QC seeks to market abroad the Qatari produces that have already conquered the domestic market.
“The next edition (of Made in Qatar) will be different from the past ones as it comes amid great developments in the national industry during an unjust siege imposed on Qatar by some of its neighbours.
Recently, he said, the Qatari industry was able to prove its worth and remained a priority for buyers to choose from within the country.
He said the number of factories in Qatar increased by 78 percent during the past year, which is a great motivation to provide opportunities to new factories.
Since its launch, the Made in Qatar expo has gained great interest, with its latest edition witnessing massive success on a national level. This popularity stems from the support of the wise leadership to the Qatari products and the state efforts to promote them nationally and internationally.
The second edition of Made in Qatar exhibition will take place in Oman between November 5 and 9, in cooperation with the Ministry of Energy and Industry and Qatar Development Bank.
The exhibition venue will sprawl over 10,000 square metres at Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre and will see the participation of about 200 Qatari companies.
The exhibition aims to promote the national industry and encourage the sale of Qatari products abroad. In addition, the exhibition aims to introduce the Omani business sector to the developments and technologies used in the different sectors exhibited at the event such as petrochemicals, food, small and medium-sized industries, furniture and others.
The exhibition also aims to provide the opportunity for exhibitors and producers to meet their Omani counterparts and discuss the possibilities of establishing partnerships and alliances that contribute to promoting the Qatar industry.
