Following a delegation talks lead by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Qatar counterpart Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani, India and Qatar had signed four agreements in the fields of Visas, cyberspace and investments. To promote closer ties between the two countries, PM Narendra Modi had, today, welcomed the Qatar PM at the Hyderabad House.

Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Vikas Swarup in a tweet, today, mentioned, “Another MoU aimed at encouraging greater collaboration & exchange in the field of national ports management of India and Qatar also signed.”

To hold bilateral, regional and multilateral issues related discussions with PM Modi, Qatar PM Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani had arrived in the national capital, yesterday.

This is the first visit of Sheikh Abdullah to India and the third high-level bilateral engagement between the two countries in the past two years, which underlines India’s growing ties with Qatar. The visit of Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani to India in March 2015 was followed by visit of Prime Minister Modi to Qatar this June.

Not only an important trading partner for India in the Gulf region, Qatar is also the largest supplier of LNG to it, accounting for 66 per cent of the total imports in 2015-16.

Indians form the largest expatriate community in Qatar and their positive contribution in the progress and development of their host country is well recognized. There are over 630,000 Indian nationals working in Qatar.
