Qatar Chamber First Vice-Chairman Mohamed bin Twar Al Kuwari met on Tuesday with Secretary General and CEO of National Chamber of Exporters of Sri Lanka Shiham Marikar via video conferencing.
The meeting touched upon commercial cooperation between the two countries and ways to enhance them and promote vistas of cooperation between both the private sectors of the two countries, as well as inviting Qatari investors to invest in Sri Lanka.
Praising the close relations between the two countries, Twar said Sri Lanka was an attractive destination for Qatari investments because it owns enormous potential in many sectors.
On his part, Shiham Marikar said the National Chamber of Exporters of Sri Lanka is keen on bolstering cooperation with Qatar Chamber, noting that a business delegation from more than 20 Sri Lankan firms will visit Qatar this year to meet their Qatari counterparts and explore opportunities available for cooperation with the Qatari side. Twar said the visit would offer a good opportunity for businessmen from both the sides to bolster their ties and explore available opportunities, in addition to forging genuine partnerships that are of good advantage for both economies.
Marikar pointed out that Sri Lanka welcomes Qatari investments at all sectors such as food security, industry, construction, rubber, IT, and others, indicating that both sides can cooperate and forge genuine partnerships in Qatar so that Qatar becomes a hub for exporting Sri Lankan products to other countries in Middle East and Europe.
