In some great news for camera lovers, Canon Middle East, a leader in imaging solutions, on April 11, 2016 announced the official inauguration of its direct operation “Canon Office Imaging Solutions - Doha” and the launch of its first dedicated business solutions showroom, achieving yet another milestone in Qatar.

The outlook for Qatar’s economy is strong as the country’s strategy has been to diversify into all major market segments. The country’s growth is expected to be 4.3%, making it one of the most attractive Middle Eastern nations.

Canon Middle East was established in partnership with Salam Technology, Canon’s longstanding imaging solutions distribution partner in Qatar, to further expand its offerings across the Qatari market, whilst building on the established customer base of Salam Technology.

Qatar is the world’s richest country per capita, with the highest human development in the Arab World. Today’s showroom inauguration is a testament of our commitment towards further growing this already robust economy,” said Stefano Zenti, Executive Vice President, Canon Europe.

“The Qatari market is one of the key, strategic markets for Canon Middle East in the region and our aim is to contribute to the Qatari economy.
