Qatar Chamber yesterday held a meeting with a visiting Italian agricultural sector trade delegation, headed by Roberto Moncalvo President of Coldiretti Association, a leading farmers union in Italy.
The meeting discussed ways to enhance cooperation between the Qatari and Italian private sector in the fields of agriculture and livestock production, feed production, and food processing, in addition to introducing Qatari businessmen to the most important Italian agricultural products and reviewing the possibility of exporting them to the Qatari market, QNA reported.
Qatar Chamber Board Member, Mohammed bin Ahmed Al Obaidly, stressed the importance of exchanging visits between businessmen and investors from both countries to discuss opportunities for joint cooperation and establish trade alliances and to benefit from the attractive investment climate in both countries, expressing Qatar Chamber’s willingness to encourage the establishment of successful partnerships between private sector companies in both countries.
He pointed out that the Qatari economy is attractive to investments in terms of opportunities, privileges and legislation, especially in light of the State’s focus on the launch of a large number of projects to develop infrastructure and logistics, calling on the Italian investors benefit from the incentives provided by the Qatari government, and to establish beneficial bilateral partnerships with their counterparts in Qatar.
In turn, the head of the Italian delegation presented an overview of Coldiretti Association, which focusses on organising the work of agricultural companies and providing farmers with machines, fertilisers and materials for agriculture, while working on harvesting and processing of crops, calling on the parties to make joint efforts to establish bilateral investments between the Qatari investors working in this area and their counterparts in Italy.
