Qatar Petroleum (QP) is supporting the ‘Made in Qatar 2017’ exhibition as sponsor of the event’s energy sector.
The expo, which will be held from December 14 to 17, is organised by Qatar Chamber, in cooperation with the Ministry of Energy and Industry, on a 29,000sqm area at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre.
Over 320 Qatari companies and factories and 138 productive families are expected to participate in the national event.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, Qatar Chamber underscored QP’s keenness in sponsoring the expo “in the context of its serious endeavours aimed at developing the industrial sector of the country, particularly that the exhibition presents an ideal platform that brings together various industries.”
‘Made in Qatar’, the Chamber continued, also enhances the State’s efforts towards economic diversification and self-sufficiency. Qatar Chamber director-general Saleh bin Hamad al-Sharqi lauded QP’s interest in supporting the expo, “which significantly reflects its keenness in developing the Qatar’s industry sector.”
Al-Sharqi also praised QP’s role in the field of industry and in the national economy. He said QP’s sponsorship “will enrich its outcomes,” even as he assured that the expo is “a great opportunity that enables visitors to identify the development that Qatari products witness year after year, especially it is being held under the unfair siege imposed on the country.”
The exhibition aims to attract more investments in the industry sector and promote locally-made products to ease dependence on imported items, al-Sharqi said. It also encourages local companies to improve and develop their products to make Qatari products globally competitive, he added.
