France and Qatar
Matthias Fekl, Minister of State for Foreign Trade, the Promotion of Tourism and French Nationals Abroad, will visit Qatar from February 10 to 11 to meet with government officials and economic decision makers. A large delegation of French business, more than a third of which will be made up of SMEs, will participate in this visit.
The excellence of the relations between the leaders of the two countries no longer needs to be demonstrated. Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani is the first Arab leader to travel to Paris to meet with President Sarkozy after his election. In 2007 and 2008, he was the guest of honour at the 14 July parade. Accompanied by his wife, he made a State visit to Paris in June 2009.
