Locally made products will now be displayed clearly with the label 'National Product' at malls and large retail outlets across the country to help the consumers spot these goods easily, the Ministry of Economy and Commerce (MEC) has said.
In a statement, the MEC announced the launch of the"National Product" initiative in cooperation with shopping malls and large retail outlets.
The move is part of the ministry's Ramadan initiatives under the theme #Aqal_Min_Al_Wajeb" the Arabic for"#The_least_we_can _do".
The initiative aims to support and market national products in the market as well as to support and ease investors' access to consumers in addition to opening markets to merchants and investors seeking to launch new products.
The initiative will contribute to the state's efforts to promote national products as part of its strategic plans and the pillars of its economic diversification strategy aimed at achieving the Qatar National Vision 2030.
National products will contribute to the creation of new economic activities and increase the contribution of non-oil sectors to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) as well as the competitiveness of the national economy.
The national products are of high quality and are being sold at competitive prices under a variety of brands, which has earned local goods a high reputation, securing many quality certificates from international organisations.
Consumer support for local industries also plays an important role in increasing the share of national products in the domestic market, enhancing their competitiveness globally and bolstering Qatar's exports.
