During her visit to the State of Qatar, President of the Council of Ministers Giorgia Meloni, accompanied by Minister of Economy and Finance Giancarlo Giorgetti, met with the Emir of Qatar, Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani, with whom she had in-depth discussions that ended with an official dinner.
The meeting was an opportunity to strengthen the excellent bilateral relations and the personal relationship with the Head of the State of Qatar.
The discussions focused on bilateral issues, on investments, including in the field of defence, and on cooperation in the fight against illegal migration, also following the International Conference on Development and Migration that was held in Rome on 23 July this year. During the meeting, the two leaders also focused on the energy partnership and the important collaboration opportunities for Italian companies, in particular for ENI, which has set up a joint venture with its counterpart Qatar Energy. The visit was an opportunity for an exchange of views on the main challenges in the region, which was also continued during a subsequent meeting with the Prime Minister of the State of Qatar, Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani.
