  • [01] President holds talks with Emir of Qatar

    President Karolos Papoulias held talks with the visiting Emir of Qatar Hamad Bin Khalifa on Wednesday, stressing afterwards that the talks between the delegations of the two countries will strengthen the development of Greece's multifaceted relations with Qatar.

    The president pointed out that the political will exists on both sides to boost relations further for the benefit of the two peoples.

    The talks mainly focused on the sectors of energy, air transportation and investments, as well as on the sectors of tourism and shipping.

    The Emir of Qatar thanked President Papoulias and congratulated the Greek people for their positions towards the Arabs and the president personally for his positions towards the people of Qatar.

    The talks were attended on the part of the Greek government, apart from Finance and Economy Minister George Alogoskoufis, by Merchant Marine Minister Manolis Kefaloyiannis, Deputy Foreign Minister Evripidis Stylianidis and Deputy Development Minister Anastasios Nerantzis.

    The Emir then met with Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis, while in the evening he will be attending an official dinner hosted in his honour by President Papoulias.

    A cooperation memorandum to facilitate investments between Greece and Qatar was signed later Wednesday by Finance and Economy Minister Alogoskoufis and his counterpart from Qatar Yousef Hussain Kamal, in the presence of President Karolos Papoulias and the Sheikh of the Emirate of Qatar Hamad Bin Khalifa.

    According to the memorandum, cooperation will be promoted on the part of Greece by the Greek Investments Centre (ELKE) and on the part of Qatar by the corresponding Qatar Investment Authority (QIA).

    The memorandum anticipates, among other things, support by ELKE for QIA's investments missions in Greece and the holding of regular or special meetings between ELKE and QIA. The duration of the memorandum is one year, while the possibility is provided to renew it automatically every year.
