Qatar and Pakistan have stepped up their efforts to strengthen and expand bilateral co-operation, particularly in the fields of trade, investment and industry, transport, energy, education, science and technology, finance, tourism and infrastructure.
This was discussed at the fifth session of Pakistan-Qatar joint commission in Doha. It was co-chaired by HE Ali bin Ahmed al-Kuwari, Minister of Commerce and Industry and Omar Ayub Khan, Federal Minister for Energy (Petroleum) of Pakistan. The co-chairs also held a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the joint commission.
