The economic forum aimed to promote private-public projects approved by Romania’s Government, as well as to analyse the outlooks of the Romanian-Qatari bilateral cooperation, with an emphasis on economic and investment cooperation, the Executive release mentions.
The Romanian PM pointed out the interest to deepen and diversify the economic relations, including by strengthening the relations between the business milieus of the two states. Moreover, Prime Minister Viorica Dancila underscored the latest regulation and implementation of the public-private law, which opens new opportunities of economic collaboration between Romania and its partners, the release shows.
The Romanian Executive head highlighted that Qatar is an important trade partner of Romania in the Gulf region and presented “Romania’s main investment opportunities.”
“Furthermore, she actively encouraged Qatari businessmen to invest in our country’s sectors of interest, such as infrastructure, agriculture, tourism and healthcare, mentioning a series of priority projects. In this regard, the Romanian PM evoked the geo-strategic position of our country and the growing trend of the Romanian economy, over the past years, as arguments to support the attractiveness of the Romanian market for investments,” according to the quoted source.
First Vice-Chairman of Qatar Chamber Mohammed bin Ahmed Bin Towar Al Kuwari underscored the good bilateral relation between Qatar and Romania, since the establishment of their diplomatic relations, back in 1990.
He mentioned the openness of the Qatari side for boosting investment relations and the wish to increase the commercial exchanges between the two countries.
“Mohammed bin Ahmed Bin Towar Al Kuwari also presented the manner in which the authorities in Doha managed to transform the economic blockade imposed on Qatar in 2017, in a way to boost economic growth. Thus, by expanding sea routes, interconnecting ports and boosting businessmen to invest in the industrial sector, Qatar succeeded to create new production facilities and increase investment opportunities for its foreign partners,” the Gov’t release mentions.
Both the Romanian PM and the First Vice-Chairman of Qatar Chamber invited businessmen to visit Romania, namely Qatar in order to convince themselves of the existing cooperation potential between the two states, while also voicing the belief that the economic forum will contribute to boosting commercial relations and mutual investments between the two countries.
