Commenting on the meetings Lim Meng Hui, Chief Executive Officer of the Qatar Free Zones Authority, said: “South Korea has been an important and strategic trade partner for Qatar. Through the QFZA-Korea Workshop and our meetings with prominent companies operating across a number of sectors we hope to have showcased Qatar’s unique investment proposition and ways that the QFZA can assist these entities in establishing and growing their presence across the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe. As a result of these meetings, we look forward to officially welcoming a South Korean delegation to visit Qatar in the near future to further understand the business opportunities available through the QFZA.”

Abdulla AlMisnad, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the Qatar Free Zones Authority, further added: “Through these high-level meetings with leading South Korean industrial entities, investment firms and business councils we hope to raise awareness of partnership opportunities with the QFZA as these companies look for business opportunities in Qatar. These organizations play important roles in their respective cluster eco-systems and effectively support larger chaebols in the country. The QFZA provides the ideal platform for such entities in South Korea to expand and benefit from Qatar’s strategic geographic location, free trade policies and state-of-the-art infrastructure in order to drive growth.”
