Uyar made the statements recently on the sidelines of Expo Turkey by Qatar 2018 which concluded on January 19.

He further revealed that Musiad delegation also had a meeting with Manateq officials to find ways to bring Turkish investments to Qatar’s economic zones.

Uyar pointed out that Musiad represented 15 major sectors hence was in a position to facilitate and guide investors from both countries for their potential investments in Turkey and Qatar.

He added that opening of new industries in Qatar was a good step that would diversify its economy but would also bring self-sufficiency.

Uyar said that many big Turkish companies were already doing businesses in Qatar and some companies had contracts of mega infrastructure projects including a 2022 World Cup stadium.

He further highlighted that the volume of bilateral trade last in 2017 was $900 million, and in a couple of years it could possibly reach $5 billion per year.
