The Australia Arab Chamber of Commerce & Industry Exporters Dinner
In Honour of His Excellency Mr Nasser bin Hamad Mubarak AL-KHALIFA, Ambassador of the State of Qatar on his first official visit to Adelaide and South Australia. AACCI (SA) Chairman Mr Soufiane Rboub is pleased to host his Excellency as a Guest of Honour for this event.
With a population of 2.2 million and high affluence, there is strong demographic and political demand for the services that SA companies can offer to Qatar. South Australia is one of Australia’s leading and most innovative food producing regions. With a large proportion of foreign expatriates (including 4,500 Australians) living in Qatar, there are opportunities to enter the market with bespoke product offerings.
Qatar has also successfully bid to host FIFA 2022. This unprecedented construction boom in Qatar will result in the construction of 70 training facilities, 8‐12 football stadiums, 12 non‐competition venues, an additional 95,000 hotel rooms, 900km of new roads, 240 new interchanges and a rail network that will connect the nation.
