Qatar to become the guest country at the SPIEF 2021
Qatar-Russia relations are set to reach new heights as Qatar prepares to partake in Russia’s leading business event, the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), as the guest nation this year.
Qatar’s participation at the prestigious global forum will cement its business and economic ties with Russia, with a plethora of new partnership agreements expected to be finalized between the two countries.
According to the Qatari Media Relations Office at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, the Qatari delegation is expected to be amongst the largest business delegations yet to be formed for an external forum of this type, reiterating Qatar’s commitment to expanding the bilateral economic ties with the Russian Federation and expanding them to new horizons.
The delegation includes more than 50 Qatari organizations with businessmen, high-ranking officials and political figures, heads of authorities and civil society organizations.
Within the framework of the SPIEF business program, discussions will be held on the industrial, economic, investment, technological, educational, cultural and sports potential of the State of Qatar. The SPIEF exhibition program will be enhanced by the Qatar Pavilion, representing multiple Qatari entities and hosting bilateral meetings, debates, and round tables on Qatar's bilateral engagement with Russia and other countries.
An extensive program of Qatari cultural events has also been prepared. It will be held within the framework of the Forum at various venues around St. Petersburg. Residents and guests of St. Petersburg may also attend the events of this cultural program.
“Such a large-scale representation of the State of Qatar at SPIEF 2021 is the best proof of the vast prospects for cooperation between Qatar and Russia and the desire of the parties to deepen and expand relations,” said His Excellency Sheikh Ahmed bin Nasser Al Thani, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the State of Qatar to the Russian Federation.
“We are confident that our collaboration through this important forum will be productive. We look forward to forging new partnerships and expanding the trade and economic ties. Being a guest country contributes to this very well.”
