Qatar and Poland have discussed ways to strengthen the economic relations between the two countries in various fields and study the potential investment opportunities.

According to the statement, the Qatari Businessmen Association (QBA) has examined the cooperation in various sectors with Mr. Pawel Jablonski, Deputy Foreign Minister for Economic Diplomacy, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland, in the presence of Mr. Janusz Janke, ambassador of Poland to Qatar.

The Qatari side was headed by HE Sheikh Faisal bin Qassim al-Thani, chairman of the QBA, in the presence of QBA board members Mr. Sherida al-Kaabi and Mr. Khalid al-Mannai, besides Ms. Sarah Abdallah, deputy GM of the association.

Sheikh Faisal emphasized the QBA’s desire to create a global network of partners in order to facilitate Qatari businessmen’s entry into other markets.

Mr. Jablonski stated that his visit intends to strengthen economic ties with Qatar, particularly in light of the upcoming second Polish-Qatari Forum, which will focus on the information technology industry. He further added that “the aim is not only to support Polish businesses but also to assist Qatari entrepreneurs in doing business with Poland.”

As per the statement, the QBA-Polish meeting discussed various economic sectors of similar interest, including agriculture, manufacturing, transportation, technology, and information technology.

“The core of the Polish government’s policy now is digitization, which requires investments, as the country has already started investing in infrastructure, transport, energy, and other fields,” added Mr. Jablonski.

Further, Mr. Al-Kaabi has noted the competitiveness and experiences enjoyed by Qatari companies, and the investment options offered by the country to foreign investors. He also encouraged Polish investors to learn more about the Qatari market and the vast investment opportunities offered by the private sector, particularly in light of the FIFA World Cup in 2022.
