Qatar Chamber has announced that Economic Zones Company “Manateq” would sponsor ‘Made in Qatar 2016’ exhibition as an economic zones partner, according to a press release issued by the Chamber yesterday.
Scheduled to be held between November 6 – 9, 2016 for the first time outside Qatar, the expo will be organized on an area of 10,000 sqm. at the Riyadh International Convention and Exhibition, KSA.
Commenting on the agreement signing, Mr. Fahad Rashid Al Kaabi, Manateq’s CEO, said: “Our participation in this event is aimed at synergizing our capacities and efforts with the various partners and stakeholders in the field of Entrepreneurship and SME Development in Qatar. Being there is also a major opportunity for Manateq to better introduce its portfolio of “Economic Zones” and to highlight their major contribution to the development and growth of SME and private sectors in various fields of the economy, which will eventually translate into a diversified economy on the longer run.”
Al Kaabi pointed out that this participation of “Manateq” in the exhibition is an apparent confirmation from our side on the importance of coordination and communication with our partners and effective institutions in the field of entrepreneurship.
The four-day exhibition aims to attract investment in the manufacturing sector while promoting and showcasing locally manufactured products in Saudi markets.
It also aims to promote Qatar’s industry sector and encourage the use of Qatari products, while updating the Saudi business community on the latest developments in participating sectors.
It also helps provide an opportunity for exhibitors and manufacturers to meet, while directly introducing Qatari products to the Saudi community, and encouraging Saudi businessmen and women to invest in industrial projects in Qatar.
We are a catalyst for change; a national initiative working to diversify Qatar’s economy through the provision of world-class infrastructures within strategically placed economic zones.
Established in 2011, with His Excellency Sheikh Ahmed Bin Jassim Al Thani, the Minister of Economy and Commerce, as the Chairman, Manateq is positioned as a vital component in achieving the ‘Economic Development’ pillar of the Qatar National Vision 2030.
We realise that long-term and sustainable economic growth can only be accomplished through a thriving private business sector, capable of competing globally, and that the nation must now think beyond the current upcoming projects, such as the 2022 World Cup, to the establishment of non-oil related industries. To this end, the emphasis is now on the creation of a solid infrastructure in which small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) can prosper and grow.
To ensure this kind of longevity, it is essential that we have the investment, expertise, and entrepreneurial culture necessary. Manateq is therefore mandated to establish a wider range of business sectors in the economy, by developing indigenous enterprises in these sectors whilst also attracting international investment, businesses, and partners.
We work with potential and existing, local and foreign, investors; providing an international gateway for the swift set-up and successful growth of your business in Qatar.
