    On August 31, within the framework of the second meeting of a Joint Commission on Economic, Trade and Technical Cooperation between the Governments of Ukraine and Qatar a meeting of the Ukrainian-Qatari roundtable was held.

    From the Ukrainian side, the meeting was kicked off by the Executive Director of UkraineInvest Sergiy Tsivkach, from the Qatari side – by the Director of the International Cooperation Department of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry of the State of Qatar Ahmed Ahen.

    During the roundtable, the main directions of bilateral cooperation were tackled, in particular in trade and economic, energy, industrial, infrastructural, IT spheres. Also the conversation revolved around key issues such as food security and business development between Ukraine and the State of Qatar.

    Apart from that, the meeting became a platform for communication between the business circles of the two countries and for official representatives of the countries. Representatives of  Qatar were briefed on the potential of Ukraine to direct foreign investments - this is primarily due to the fact that Ukraine has significant potential for business development and the domestic market; favorable geographical position at the intersection of major transport routes between Europe and Asia; relatively inexpensive and at the same time skilled labor force; great scientific potential and developed infrastructure. Ukraine is and remains an attractive country for investment.

    "The state of Qatar is one of the priority countries for UkraineInvest, and our team will continue to assist Qatari investors who see Ukraine as a promising country for investment. Economic cooperation between Ukraine and the State of Qatar is mutually beneficial and has significant opportunities for development. Ukraine's role in ensuring global food security is constantly growing and our agricultural sector has many investment opportunities for Qatari investors. Ukraine continues to modernize its infrastructure to strengthen its competitive advantage. The adoption of the law on concessions creates opportunities for Qatari investors. In particular, QTerminals, a leading Qatari port operator, has already won a tender for concessions for the port of Olvia in Mykolayiv," Sergiy Tsivkach, Executive Director, UkraineInvest stressed.
