(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) The Gulf Partnership and Investment Forum will kick off on August 28th, 2012 at Crowne Plaza Salalah. The three-day forum will be organized in cooperation with the Federation of GCC Chambers (FGCCCs).
The Forum includes a series of working sessions to discuss three main themes: partnership and investment in the industry sector, partnership and investment in the tourism sector and various investment opportunities in Dhofar.
A number of bilateral meetings will be held on the sidelines of the forum to discuss strengthening relations among participants both at the local and Gulf levels.
The forum comes as implementation of plans and programmes adapted by the FGCCCs last year in Kuwait in a bid to encourage investment in the GCC countries through reviewing the available investment opportunities in different sectors and introducing the facilities and benefits provided by the GCC governments for the private sector.
The forum will be attend by a number of officials, experts, academics, researchers and economists from the GCC states and other countries of the world.
