Qatar Chamber Vice Chairman Mohammed bin Ahmed bin Tawar met with Guillaume Pepy, the CEO of the French Railway Company and Chairman of the Qatari French Committee at MEDEF International, and his accompanying delegation in Doha, a press statement said on Sunday.
The meeting reviewed enhancing cooperation between the Qatari private sector and its French counterpart, and promoting the French companies in the Qatari market.
Twar said the Qatari private sector proved its efficiency and power, during the siege.
He said the Qatari local market is wide open to French companies for investments, which will add value to the national economy.
Pepy said the objective of the visit was to learn about the Qatari local market and the sectors in which both countries’ businessmen can build partnerships and alliances.
Hailing the Qatari economy’s continued growth despite the seige, Pepy said,”The siege is a new opportunity for businessmen to put extra efforts for strengthening national economy by boosting self-sufficiency and promoting local industry and investments.”
He assured MEDEF’s support to Qatar, pointing out that the federation will intensify visits between both countries’ businessmen to transfer value-added industries to Qatar.
