HE the Minister of Municipality and Environment, Abdullah bin Abdulaziz bin Turki al-Subaie, participated in the second session of the Franco-Qatari economic circle (Qadran), which was opened by the ambassador of the State of Qatar to the French Republic, Sheikh Ali bin Jassem al-Thani, in the presence of Qatari and French businessmen.
In a speech, Sheikh Ali said that the organising of this economic meeting in the French capital coincides with the start of the activities of the Qatar-France Year of Culture 2020, and aims to focus on the State of Qatar’s plan for smart cities, in line with Qatar National Vision 2030, and explore development prospects, especially the human and environmental spheres.
The ambassador affirmed the distinguished economic relations between the State of Qatar and the French Republic, pointing to the signing of a long-term agreement between Qatar Petroleum and the French company Elengy last week to import and store LNG in France.
Sheikh Ali, on behalf of HE the Minister of Municipality and Environment, invited French companies specialised in the sectors of agriculture, environment, and waste and water treatment to participate in the 8th International Agricultural Exhibition (AgriteQ), which will be organised in the State of Qatar from 17 to 21 March, and the waste treatment exhibition to be organised in Doha from 14 to 16 April 2020.
During the economic meeting, round tables were organised with the participation of leading Qatari and French businessmen, which centred on the concept of “smart cities” and “innovative transportation”, in addition to discussing the strategy of the French-Qatari economic partnership and investment opportunities available in both countries.
Franco-Qatari economic circle (Qadran) was established in 2015 to enhance exchange and dialogue between Qatari and French companies and develop joint economic dynamics, and now includes 56 major commercial companies in the State of Qatar and France.
