Sweden is exploring business opportunities, especially in the areas of transport solutions and health, in Qatar as part of its strategy to enhance bilateral economic and trade relations between the two countries.
This was discussed by Krister Nilsson, State Secretary at the Ministry for Foreign Trade and Department for Nordic affairs, during his visit to Qatar. He was accompanied by Hakan Emsgard from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Ulf Rudebark from the Swedish Trade and Invest Council.
“This is a good opportunity for Qatar and Sweden to further develop our relations and to co-operate in new areas such as innovative transport solutions as well as areas of health and safety at work and corporate social responsibility,” Nilsson said.
During their one-day visit, the delegation met with high-level Qatari representatives from the transportation sector, the Ministry of Transport and Communications, the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labor and Social Affairs, the International Labour Organisation’s (ILO) Project Office as well as the Swedish business community in Qatar.
“We are very satisfied with the state secretary’s visit. I strongly believe that our meetings here today will contribute to foster our bilateral relations even more,” Swedish envoy to Qatar Anders Bengtcen said.
