The Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MOCI) has obtained, by unanimous vote, the approval of the General Assembly of GS1 to establish a barcode office for Qatari products, thanks to the joint efforts and endeavors of the MOCI and the Qatar Development Bank (QDB).

The MOCI, in a statement, has made clear that the State of Qatar has obtained the code 630 for locally-made products that can be exported or even traded within the country.

HE Mr. Ali bin Ahmed Al Kuwari, the Minister of Commerce and Industry, said: "Establishing the office and creating the system of barcoding Qatari products is one of the distinctive achievements within the framework of the implementation of the State's industrial strategy. This is a reflection of the ability of the private sector to achieve self-sufficiency and compete globally by exporting its products."
