Attending the opening ceremony in Doha this morning, I feel privileged to represent the Fremantle Chamber of Commerce and the business community of Fremantle.
Speakers included Jean -Guy Carrier Secretary General of the international chamber of commerce, Sheikh Khalifa bin Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani Chairman of the Qatar Chamber of Commerce and Victor K.Fung Chairman of the ICC business world trade agenda plus many others.
They spoke on many different topics however the most poignant were the need to reduce the red tape in supporting growth and reducing poverty among the least developed counties. This will create over 21 million new jobs worldwide!
The speakers referred to the participants here such as the Fremantle Chamber as “Honorary Merchants of Peace”, a title I think we can all be proud of.
