Qatar Chamber (QC) discussed enhancing joint cooperation with a visiting delegation from Turkish furniture manufacturers under the Kayseri Furniture Industrialists’ Association (Kaymos), led by its chairman, Yakup Deveci.
QC Vice Chairman Mohamed bin Ahmed bin Twar said that the Qatari market welcomes Turkish investments in all industrial, commercial, service and logistics sectors, during the meeting, which discussed ways to open new partnerships with the Turkish association.
The private sector partnership between Qatar and Turkey is reflected on the volume of trade between the two countries, which amounts to QR2bn, Twar said.
“QC is ready to provide all the necessary support to the Turkish Association to expand its investments in Qatar,” Bin Twar said, adding that further meetings between businessmen in the two countries will result in long-term partnerships that contribute to the strengthening of economic relations between the two sides.
The 120-member association of textile, fabric and decoration manufacturers in Kayseri seeks to create partnerships with companies in Qatar that have an attractive investment climate and are among the fastest growing in the region, Kaymos chairman Yakup Deveci stressed.
Discussions are being held by the association with exporters in Turkey in order to reduce shipping costs and the transport of goods and products to Qatar, which will open up the horizons for economic cooperation between the private sector in both countries, especially in the upholstery sector, Deveci added.
