Doha, Qatar.- Dominican ambassador to Qatar, Dr. Federico Alberto Cuello Camillo, affirmed Mon. that seeing a growing interest by Qatar businessmen to invest in the Dominican Republic is “very encouraging.”

Speaking after a luncheon with Qatari investors, the diplomat said their interest lies in evaluating investment projects in tourism, electrical distribution, port infrastructure and logistics.

“The entrepreneurs were highly motivated to confirm the Qatari chapter of the Dominican Chamber of Commerce for the Middle East and North Africa, which is already being incorporated in Santo Domingo for its launch soon,” Cuello said in a statement.

He said the Dominican Republic is ready for an open skies agreement with Qatar, which would let Qatar Airways bring Asian tourists to the region, making their first stop in Doha, continuing to local airports and continuing to the rest of the region. “Those planes would come back loaded with fresh products for sale in Qatar, just like the ones on British Airways to London.”
