The Vice-Chairman of Qatar Chamber, Muhammed bin Ahmed bin Towar, said that the private sector in the two countries has distinguished trade relations with growth and development at all levels, noting that there are opportunities for further cooperation between the two sides in various sectors, especially as Qatari businessmen are keen to explore business opportunities in Sri Lanka.
