THE GOVERNMENT of Barbados is seeking to deepen relations with the state of Qatar.

International Business Minister, Donville Inniss, expressed these sentiments yesterday during a courtesy call with the Ambassador of Qatar to Barbados, Battal Maejeb Al-Dosari, during a visit at his Reef Road office.

Noting that as two small nations Barbados and Qatar must find ways to strengthen ties and carve out mutual interests, Inniss informed the Ambassador that this country has carved a niche not only in the tourism sector but also in international business.

In response, Ambassador Al-Dosari pointed out that although Qatar had maintained its economic stability mainly through the production and export of oil and natural gas, it was also looking to diversify into the tourism sector, and find ways of re-energising its agricultural production sector.

Inniss added that Barbados would like a bigger presence in Qatar and the establishment of an Honorary Consulate in Doha would aid in that process. Other areas of discussion included renewable energy and potential growth in marine-based activity.

Barbados and Qatar established diplomatic relations on December 4, 2007. (BGIS)
