The meeting in Moscow
addressed such topics as building business and cultural ties between Russia and
Qatar for years to come, as well developing tourism, economic relations,
investment projects and mechanisms for investment cooperation.
«We need to focus on
practical measures that will help develop cooperation with Qatar,» noted
Advisor to the President of the Russian Federation Anton Kobyakov. «In
February 2020, visa waiver agreement between our countries came into force.
This is just one of the consistent and logical steps toward building a reliable
partnership. We will invest our efforts in improving the partnership strategy
between Russia and Qatar and demonstrate a stable partnership at the St.
Petersburg International Economic Forum in 2021.»
The main purpose of
cooperation between Russia and Qatar is taking bilateral cooperation to a new
level by transitioning from meeting between officials to day-to-day operations
of economic players. Participants emphasized the important role of the working
group coordinating investment and business projects. The agreement to establish
the group was signed by the Roscongress Foundation and the Investment Promotion
Agency of Qatar (IPAQ) in Doha in December 2019. As of now, the parties are
discussing promising investment and trade projects.
«We would like to express
our solidarity with the Russian Federation as it takes measures to prevent the
spread of coronavirus. Qatar looks forward to being the guest country at SPIEF
2021. All our agreements remain in effect, and we are excited about the
opportunity to make an even greater contribution to the development of the
event programme,» said Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the
State of Qatar to the Russian Federation Fahad bin Mohammed Al-Attiyah.
