IHK Munich/ Upper Bavaria: Qatar Summer Talk 2018
On 18th June, the Qatar Summer Discussion 2018 took place in the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Munich/ Upper Bavaria. As the guest of honor, His Excellency Sheikh Saoud bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, Ambassador of the State of Qatar, spoke with representatives of German SMEs about infrastructure projects, economic development and current and future investment opportunities.
Trade with Bavarian companies is steadily rising and SMEs, as the backbone of the German economy, are particularly encouraged to take a closer look at investment opportunities in Qatar.
German know-how is in strong demand and many current projects already drawing on it. By the end of the year, however, in many areas of the increasingly diversified economy there will be additional opportunities for companies offering German technology and services, His Excellency the Ambassador pointed out in Munich.
Locations such as Hamad Port as well as the Manateq industrial zone are already showing how Qatar is becoming the hub for logistics in the Middle East, and were therefore also the focus of discussions with the Bavarian entrepreneurs.
However, in order to advance the diversity of the Qatari economy, His Excellency the Ambassador also drew the attention to the areas in which German small and medium enterprises in Qatar can become even more active. These include the food, medical, energy and high-tech sectors, to name a few. These sectors are currently creating far-reaching potential.
