Discussions will also focus on infrastructure projects associated with Qatar’s preparations to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup, successful joint ventures and the success stories of Chinese companies in Qatar.

The event provides an important networking platform that brings together Qatari and Chinese businessmen and representatives of the private sector in both countries. It will familiarise attendees with the characteristics of the business environment in Qatar, which represents an attractive destination for foreign investments. The forum will also highlight Qatar’s attractive legislative environment, as well as amended laws and new legislation adopted by Qatar to attract and encourage foreign direct investments.

The forum will draw investment opportunities in priority sectors to pave the way for foreign investments in Qatar that will strengthen bilateral cooperation and contribute to the development of innovative investment areas.
