About 8,000 people visited the Made in Qatar exhibition in the past three days and that number is expected to rise to 10,000 when the expo comes to a close on Sunday, Qatar Chamber said.
The second day of the exhibition also witnessed the signing of a partnership agreement between Al Bandary Engineering Company of Al-Bandary International Group and Bulgaria's PRISTA oil company.
Chief Financial Officer of Al Bandary Engine Engineering Ibrahim Abdullah said that cooperation between the Qatari and Bulgarian companies aims to supply 200,000 litres a year of lubricants and greases of all kinds of machinery, vehicles and equipment, gradually increasing to 1 million litres each year.
This year's 'Made in Qatar' exhibition comes at a time when the siege is imposed on the State by the three Gulf countries, which resulted in great attention being paid to national products by all stakeholders in the State.
The expo coincides with the National Day celebrations, which falls on December 18. A number of regional and international commercial establishments are participating in the exhibition.
Qatar Chamber has invited embassies of friendly and fraternal countries in coordination with the Foreign Ministry to participate in the exhibition.
The exhibition also provides free display spaces for trade representatives from a number of embassies in Doha to enable the Qatari manufacturers and businessmen to learn about these markets and provide them with an opportunity to exchange experiences, information and techniques that can benefit businesses in the country.
