Overlooking the waters of the Persian Gulf, Qatar is a country that perfectly combines secular Arabic tradition and remarkable architectural modernity. The capital, Doha, is a prestigious metropolis, and a hub to vibrant trade relations and international events. In more recent years, it has become a highly coveted tourist destination. The stark contrast between the dunes of the desert and the futuristic skyscrapers offers to its visitors the unmatchable scenery of a forward-looking country. Qatar will be the first Arab country to host the World Cup tournament of FIFA 2022. This major football event will represent an amazing opportunity to promote Qatar’s attention to sustainable development, as well as its interest in strengthening tourism. Thanks to the favorable investment climate and its economic stability, Qatar proves to be once again a promising destination with high potential for all the Italians who are keen to develop trade relations abroad.
The Importance of Business Networking
A strong professional network plays a crucial role in the growth of a company. Therefore, networking events are fundamental to developing contacts with the aim to promote one’s own activity, and to strengthen interpersonal relations among business leaders, possibly leading to new business opportunities. These events pose themselves as a chance for an informal meeting to build long-lasting relations among entrepreneurs, authorities, experts, and managers of SMEs. The Italian Chamber of Commerce in Qatar plays an especially active role in the organization of business networking events with the presence of local authorities, Qatari businessmen, and international managers, so as to favor relations with Italian companies.
