Qatar Petroleum (QP) is supporting the ‘Made in Qatar 2020’ exhibition in Kuwait as a partner of the event’s energy sector, according to a statement from Qatar Chamber on Sunday.
The expo, which kicks off on February 19, is organised by Qatar Chamber, in cooperation with the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Qatar Development Bank (QDB) as strategic partner, and in coordination with the Kuwait Chamber of Commerce & Industry.
The exhibition will be held on a 10,000sq m area at the Kuwait International Fair. The four-day expo will see a participation of about 220 Qatari manufacturing companies, Qatar Chamber said.
The Chamber said QP’s keenness on sponsoring the expo is aimed at supporting the industrial sector of the country, considering that the exhibition presents an ideal platform that brings together various industries, and helps in enhancing efforts for the advantage of the economic diversification.
The expo, held for the third time outside Qatar, aims to promote Qatari industries in the Kuwaiti market and open new channels of cooperation between businessmen from both the countries.
Qatar Chamber chairman Sheikh Khalifa bin Jassim al-Thani said QP’s interest in supporting the expo significantly reflects its keenness on developing the Qatar’s industrial sector. He also praised the leading role played by the company in the industrial field.
“QP’s sponsorship to the event will enrich its outcomes,” he pointed out, assuring that the expo will be a great opportunity enabling visitors to identify the development of Qatar industry.
He said the event offers a good chance for Qatari firms to recognise the Kuwaiti market and promote their products in Kuwait, as well as to review ways to enhance cooperation with Kuwaiti companies and establishing joint industrial ventures.
