Monitoring Desk

DOHA: Turkey expects enhanced cooperation with Qatar, Turkish minister for transport, maritime affairs and communications said on Monday.

Speaking via FaceTime from Turkey during a promotional event in the Qatari capital Doha for the www.turkishsouq.qa website, Ahmet Arslan said: “Our 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.”

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 be an example to the world and contribute to the 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 the customer in seven days, and they are working on shortening the waiting time.
