Al-Ageel: GOIC is keen to promote Gulf industrial sector
His Excellency Mr. Abdulaziz Bin Hamad Al-Ageel, GOIC Secretary General, inaugurated the International Exhibition for Wall and Floor Covering Technologies COVERTECH 2016 at Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre (DECC) on Wednesday, March 23, 2016.
HE Mr. Al-Ageel stated: “Since four decades, GOIC has been partaking in identifying and introducing modern industries and shaping general industrial policies in the Gulf. We are the main sponsor of COVERTECH for the second consecutive year, and we hope this event will actively contribute to supplying industries in general, and building materials sector in particular with their requirements to respond to the needs of megaprojects preceding Qatar FIFA World Cup 2022. We also hope to see this exhibition paving the way for cooperation between interested companies and stakeholders to exchange expertise, conclude deals, build fruitful commercial relations, particularly between local Qatari and Gulf companies on the one hand, and multinationals on the other.”
HE the Secretary General stressed the important role of GOIC for the private sector of GCC economies, which contributes to socio-economic integration between public and private sectors in the region. He added: “GOIC was capable of asserting its key role in the area of Gulf industrial development as a highly reputable and competitive expertise hub that is excelling in offering industrial consulting services. In fact, GOIC provides both industrial and economic public and private sectors with accurate market information, specialised consulting services and appropriate training.”
HE Mr. Al-Ageel said: “GOIC actively seeks to support specialised activities, events and exhibitions aiming at boosting GCC economies. The Organization is also keen to encourage GCC private sector events aiming at promoting the industrial sector and industrial cooperation and coordination between GCC countries.”
To conclude, HE Mr. Al-Ageel hoped the exhibition would be an opportunity to promote industrial development and commercial cooperation between GCC countries for the best of our beloved countries in the Arabian Gulf.
GOIC’s booth in the exhibition will include information about its various programs like the GCC Subcontracting and Partnership Exchange (GSPX), the Industrial Market Intelligence Portal (IMI Plus), the Training and Capacity Development (TCD), the Industrial Technical Assistance (ITA), the Manufacturing Industrial Opportunities (MIOP) and the Industrial Studies and Policies (ISP).
