Qatar Chamber vice chairman Mohamed bin Twar and officials from the Qatari-Russian Business Council review cooperation ties between Qatar and Russia during a meeting held yesterday. The Chamber discussed prospects of enhancing mutual cooperation with the Qatari-Russian Business Council and ways of launching new partnerships between Qatari businessmen and their Russian counterparts “on all fronts,” particularly food security.
Mohamed bin Twar said the chamber saw “great interest” from Qatari businesses to cooperate with the Russian side in agricultural, livestock, and food warehouse projects, and to benefit from Russia’s “wide expertise in this area.”
He noted that the Qatari government is offering its assistance to meet food security objectives. He also pointed out that there was substantial growth in food industries due to the “great attention” given to this sector to achieve self-sufficiency and export capability.
The Qatar Chamber official underscored the opportunity to enhance commercial cooperation between the two countries, “especially that Qatar welcomes Russian investments that would contribute to the national economy.”
According to the Qatari-Russian Business Council, many business owners from Russia “are keen on entering the Qatari market and establish effective partnerships.” The council also lauded Qatar’s “investment-stimulating atmosphere” and the assistance the Qatari government provides to foreign investors
