The International Chamber of Commerce in Qatar (ICC Qatar) plans to boost its local and international investments as part of its new and up-scaled strategy, said a senior official.
Outlining the news strategy Sheikh Khalifa Bin Jassim Bin Mohammed Al-Thani, chairman of the Qatar Chamber of Commerce & Industry (QCCI) and ICC Qatar, said, 'The chamber plans to reinforce its powerful presence as the main representative of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) on a national level.'
“ICC believes, like Qatar does, in the power of global commerce and trade,' said Sheikh Al Thani while addressing a gathering at a dinner ceremony sponsored by HSBC, Qatar and Qapco in Grand Hyatt Hotel last night.
'Its objective is to promote trade and through this promote global co-operation within the business community, as it strives to support global prosperity and offer a wide selection of services and practical tools to facilitate business in Qatar and around the world.'
Shedding light on ICC Qatar’s new approach, Sheikh Al Thani said, “Training will take up a big part of ICC Qatar’s new strategy.'
