Qatar continues to attract investments despite illegal siege, says Chamber chairman
It is now more than five months since the illegal siege of Qatar began. While there was some slowdown during the initial days, that has not slowed the rate of investment in the country.
Despite the unjust siege, Qatar remains an attractive investment destination for many international investors, according to Qatar Chamber chairman Sheikh Khalifa bin Jassim Al Thani, reported Gulf Times.
He said that the large turnout of international exhibitors at the three-day Index Qatar exhibition was an example of the international community’s trust in the Qatari economy.
“Even after the siege on Qatar and the economic blockade, we still see many people participating in various exhibitions being held in the country, and many people have a lot of trust in the Qatari market, which has a large potential for further growth,” he said.
Interior designers, manufactures and suppliers across the globe are showcasing their products at Index Qatar, which is being held at the Doha Exhibition & Convention Center (DECC), reported The Peninsula.
Sheikh Khalifa said that Qatar is witnessing a growth in the construction market and real estate projects, in addition to the constant continuation of the projects related to 2022 FIFA World Cup.
He expected the exhibition to witness the signing of deals and alliances between Qatari and foreign companies in this sector.
