Indian trade delegation arriving in Doha tomorrow.

The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) is sending a nine-member high level business delegation to Doha on October 20 and 21.

The delegation is led by Dr Naushad Forbes, president-designate, CII & director, Forbes Marshall, and includes CEOs and other senior representatives of companies engaged in a wide range of sectors including, infrastructure, energy, heavy engineering, manufacturing, consultancy and Information Technology.

The visit of the CII mission is taking place in the framework of the vast potential and shared interest of both sides to further expand business and investment partnerships.

CII had last sent a business delegation to Qatar in September, 2013. The forthcoming visit of a CII mission is taking place in the wake of the launch of 'Make in India' campaign by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in September 2014 and the State Visit of HH the Emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani to India on March 24, 25 this year during which an India-Qatar Business Forum was organised with the participation of a large number of businessmen from both countries.

The programme of the delegation, co-ordinated by Indian embassy in Doha, with the active support of Qatar Chamber of Commerce and Industry (QCCI) and Indian Business & Professionals Network (IBPN), includes interactions with local companies with a view to developing and expanding business in diverse sectors.

During the visit, Dr Forbes would be addressing a Plenary Session of the World Export Development Forum 2015 taking place in Doha.

It currently has more than 7,200 members, including MNCs and SMEs, and an indirect membership of over 90,000 enterprises from nearly 260 nationals and regional sectoral industry bodies.
