Qatar Primary Materials Company (QPMC) has stock of gabbro, fine sand and limestone material for one year. Engineer Eisa Al Hammadi, Chief Executive Officer of QPMC said, in a meeting held at #Qatar Chamber yesterday, that company's strategic inventory including gabbro, fine sand and limestone material is sufficient for one year.
Al Hammadi announced that QPMC is in coordination with the Ministry of Municipality and Environment to issue special tenders for private sector companies to recycle construction waste and drilling products into usable products.
A number of representatives of companies importing primary materials in #Qatar discussed options to find new import destinations instead of the three boycotting countries.
During the meeting, which brought together a number of representatives of stakeholders in the field of import and storage, the representatives of these companies said they have already begun contracting with neighboring countries to provide them with their needs of primary construction materials.
Importers of building materials called for facilitating import and storage procedures, allocating a logistical land to store goods and reviewing storage charges. Qaar Chamber (QC) Vice-Chairman Mohammed bin Ahmed bin Towar Al Kuwari said #Qatar has many options and alternatives to meet needs of the local market for all commodities, whether foodstuffs or primary construction materials.
Al Kuwari lauded the great response by businessmen with the pivotal role played by #Qatar Chamber. Ali Abdul Latif Al Misnad, member of the Board of Directors of the Chamber and Honorary Treasurer, said the Qatari economy was not affected by the GCC boycott and showed great strength and cohesion following the break of diplomatic ties by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
Food imports to the Qatari market continued at a faster pace through the contracts of traders with exporters from other countries, he said, adding that daily food products have arrived from #Turkey and other markets thus the consumer did not feel any shortage of food.
Al Misnad highlighted the pivotal role being played by #Qatar Chamber by holding meetings with traders and businessmen, praising its ongoing efforts to overcome all obstacles facing them and discuss those obstacles with the concerned parties in order to resolve them
