Qatar is well-placed to ride out the recent siege-like conditions that were recently imposed on it by its neighbors, a senior Chamber of Commerce (QC) official has said.
Though its land border with Saudi Arabia is closed, Qatar is still receiving food and other supplies through Hamad Port and air cargo, QC Chief Sheikh Khalifa bin Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani said.
All in all, the country has enough stocks to sustain its people for 12 months, he added, according to the Peninsula.
The newspaper said that the QC held a meeting with 40 major food companies this week. They have negotiated new contracts with different suppliers since the recent falling out with some Gulf states.
One of the countries that have offered to supply food to Qatar is Iran.
Qatar has been working to boost consumer confidence after three of its neighbors cut diplomatic and economic ties with the nation on Monday.
