Qatar to host warehouse facilities for SMEs

Posted on 18th June 2014

According to a report by Gulf Times, The Qatari Government has announced plans to provide storage facilities for small and medium sized companies. Three locations have been chosen to host the warehouses and other logistics facilities, in co-operation with the Ministry of Municipality and Urban Planning, covering expansive areas of 498,000 square meters, 499,000 square meters, and 517,000 square meters, respectively.

There is currently a lack of storage facilities for small and medium sized firms working in Qatar’s private sector. Both open storage and chilled storage facilities are to be provided, under the new plans.

The project was announced at a press conference in Doha, which was attended by Minister of Economy and Commerce, Sheikh Ahmed bin Jassim bin Mohamed al-Thani; HE the Minister of Finance, Ali Shareef al-Emadi; HE the Minister of Municipality and Urban Planning, Sheikh Abdulrahman bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz al-Thani; and Qatar Chamber vice-chairman Mohamed bin Ahmed bin Towar al-Kuwari.

Sheikh Ahmed said the project was aimed at bridging the gap between demand and supply and securing an “effective logistics facility” for SMEs in the country. The minister reiterated the need to develop a stronger partnership between the government and the private sector.
