QTA tasked with licensing and regulating expo firms in Qatar

Qatar Tourism Authority has been given the authority to license companies that organise exhibitions here or deal in businesses relating to exhibitions, the Peninsula has reported. Under a new law passed on Wednesday, licensed companies will be required to seek permission from the authorities concerned to hold exhibitions that concern a particular sector or industry. Existing companies in the business of organising exhibitions locally or carrying out activities that concern exhibitions, have been given six months to approach QTA for licensing.
