Turkey plans to set up manufacturing facilities in Qatar

DOHA, October 24, 2017

Plans are in the pipeline for the establishment of Turkish manufacturing facilities in Qatar to help in the production of more locally-made products, said an official.

The Turkish companies will be involved in direct production to help Qatari companies make their own products, Fikret Ozer, Turkey’s ambassador to Qatar, was quoted as saying in a Gulf Times report.

Ozer said that a delegation composed of major furniture manufacturing companies from Turkey’s Kayseri province visited Qatar earlier this month to seek investment opportunities and potential partnerships with Qatari companies.

Yakup Deveci, chairman of Kayseri Furniture Industrialists’ Association (Kaymos), told Gulf Times during the visit that as a business and government policy Qatar is a priority country for Turkey.

The chairman noted that the company wants to establish its presence in the Qatari market not only for its own businesses but also a show of support for Qatar’s business community.

Aside from the furniture industry, the ambassador also revealed that Turkey wants to make contributions to Qatar in the field of medicine.
