Qatar Industrial Manufacturing Company (QIMC) is supporting the ‘Made in Qatar 2020’ exhibition as Diamond Sponsor.
Qatar Chamber director general Saleh bin Hamad al-Sharqi and QIMC CEO Abdul Rahman Abdulla al-Ansari signed the sponsorship agreement in a ceremony.
The expo, slated from February 19 to 22 at the Kuwait International Fair in Kuwait, will be organised by Qatar Chamber, in co-operation with the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, and Qatar Development Bank as strategic partner, in co-ordination with the Kuwait Chamber of Commerce & Industry.
The third edition of ‘Made in Qatar’ will be held outside Qatar and is expected to witness the participation of more than 220 companies and factories from Qatar.
Al-Ansari said, “QIMC is very keen to support the exhibition whether held inside or outside the state. The expo has succeeded in promoting local products abroad, even as Kuwait is an important market for Qatari businessmen and manufacturers. The expo provides a significant opportunity for participants to enhance their co-operation ties and forge new partnerships.”
Al-Sharqi lauded the role played by the company in developing the industry sector in the country. He noted that the company’s sponsorship emphasises its interest in supporting the national industry, especially since the expo has become an ideal platform that brings together Qatari businessmen and manufacturers with their counterparts from various countries.
He said Qatari and Kuwaiti private sectors “are very close,” and assured that the expo would open the way for exhibiting companies to establish partnerships, transactions, and alliances with Kuwaiti companies.
The four-day expo aims at fostering co-operation and exchanging expertise between Qatari and Kuwaiti companies, in addition to informing the Kuwaiti business community on Qatar products, as well as opening new markets to Qatari companies in its various large and small industries.
