Qatar – Economic diplomacy – Visit by Matthias Fekl (Doha, February 10 to 11, 2015)


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 discussions will mainly focus on our cooperation with respect to sustainable cities, tourism and sport. They will provide an opportunity for companies to establish, if they so wish, valuable contacts to help promote their development in Qatar, thanks to a customized support program provided by Business France.

During this visit, Mr. Matthias Fekl will deliver a speech on the French-Qatari economic partnership at the HEC Paris (Hautes Etudes Commerciales de Paris) premises in Qatar. He will also meet with the French business community, their elected representatives, consular advisors, as well as the principals of the French lycées.
