MOTC and Korean Trade Investment Agency Host ITS Forum in Qatar

Qatar’s Ministry of Transport and Communications (MOTC) along with the Korean Trade Investment Agency (KOTRA) collaborated to host the ITS Forum at the Hilton Hotel in Doha on June 19th 2019. The Forum offered the opportunity for as many as 13 South Korean companies specializing in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) to showcase their technologies and expertise with their Qatari Counterparts and discuss opportunities for partnerships and collaborations during FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and beyond.

The Forum agenda included a G2G meeting between Her Excellency Reem Al Mansoori, Assistant Undersecretary of Digital Society Development, MOTC; His Excellency Chang-mo Kim, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to the State of Qatar; and senior leadership from South Korea’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transportation (MOLIT), ITS Korea, and Korea Expressway Corporation. The parties discussed potential collaboration and partnerships with TASMU, MOTC’s Smart Qatar program, related specifically to the transport and logistics sector during FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and beyond as the parties drew parallels between the World Cup and South Korea’s experience during the PyeongChang Winter Olympics 2018.
