Consul General of the State of Qatar Mohammed Sultan Al-Kuwari paid a courtesy visit to the Chamber on 24 January, where his team was received by Asia & Africa Committee Chairman Behzad Mirzaei and Vice Chairman Andrew Wells, along with members. This was Consul General Al-Kuwari’s first visit to the Chamber since he arrived in Hong Kong in November. During the meeting, Consul General Al-Kuwari pointed out the rapid growth in the Qatari economy over the past few years and explained the country’s latest policies to attract foreign investment, including free trade zones and the removal of limitations on foreign ownership of businesses. Qatar is one of the Chamber’s major destinations for Certificates of Origin, with HKGCC issuing around 14,000 COs and certificates of business documents to Qatar in 2018.
