Turkey looks to enhance cooperation with Qatar, transport minister says
DOHA – Anadolu Agency
Turkey expects enhanced cooperation with Qatar, Turkey’s Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications Minister Ahmet Arslan said on Jan. 1.
Speaking via FaceTime from Turkey during a promotional event in the Qatari capital Doha for the turkishsouq.qa website, Arslan said Turkey’s cooperation with Qatar will not be limited to e-commerce.
“It will become widespread in other fields and will pave the way for the two countries to work together elsewhere,” he added.
The e-commerce platform opened through cooperation between Turkey’s General Directorate of Post and Telegraph Organization (PTT) and Qatar Post.
PTT Chairman Kemal Bozgeyik said the project would set an example to the world and contribute to bilateral ties.
“Qataris will reach many products in Turkey thanks to the website being promoted. Trade between our countries will develop,” Bozgeyik said.
Qatari Transport Minister Jassim Saif Al Sulaiti said the products will reach customers in seven days but they are working on shortening the waiting time.
