Word from the Ambassador

Dear Guests,

Welcome to the website of the Embassy of The State of Qatar in Belrin. The Website will provide you with an overview of the State of Qatar. Qatar and Germany have long term relations and strong partnership.

Qatar is an important partner for Germany in the Gulf region and the Middle East. Through dialogue, we discuss issues related to the present and the future. There is no doubt that our bilateral relations have become stronger than ever not only in the political and economic fields, but also in other areas such as cultural, sports and educational exchanges. In light of the current international situation, it is essential to expand cooperation between the two countries.

In order to achieve the "Qatar Vision 2030" and the state's aspirations to diversify the sources of its economy, we consider Germany an important partner for Qatar within the European Union. In addition, Qatar has wide and diverse investments in Germany.

My ambition as Ambassador is to deepen and further develop the existing cooperation between the two countries at all levels.

We are also keen to provide you in this website with information about the State of Qatar, the function of the embassy in Berlin and the services provided by the Consular Affairs.

Thank you for visiting the website of the Embassy.
