New British Chamber of Commerce opens in Qatar

UK

The Lord Mayor of the City of London, Alderman Alan Yarrow, opened the premises of the new British Chamber of Commerce in Qatar on January 27. The organisation has been established to support and strengthen trade between Britain and Qatar, and is part of the rapidly expanding network of British business organisations overseas dedicated to helping UK companies grow their business through overseas trade and exports. The Lord Mayor said: 'It could not be a better time to begin exporting and to open up new business with Qatar. Not only is the economy booming here, but the prospects for British firms are excellent with the most recent trade figures showing UK trade with Qatar up 40% on the previous year.' Peter Cook, Managing Director of the new Chamber, added: 'Establishing a British Chamber in Qatar to focus on supporting UK business could not be more important or urgent. With the extensive backing of the British and Qatari Governments and the British Chambers of Commerce organisation in the UK, the Chamber in Qatar intends to become one of the leading business support organisations in the country.'
