Swedish envoy to Qatar has described the bilateral ties as excellent, saying the partnership has deepened in recent years.
In an exclusive interview with The Peninsula, Ambassador H E Gautam Bhattacharyya said strong ties between Qatar and Sweden in several areas will continue to deepen in future in areas of common interest, including industry, sustainability, and innovation.
“Sweden and Qatar have excellent bilateral relations and have been growing since we established diplomatic relations 50 years ago. Next year, it will be ten years since the Swedish embassy in Doha has been established. Our collaboration has grown across the board. We collaborate in the industry, academia, people-to-people contact, and culture. It’s quite a broad relation given that these are two small countries,” he said, adding that there is scope for cooperation in different areas. Sweden wants to increase cooperation with Qatar in industry, energy, transport and infrastructure, healthcare, sustainability, innovation, education, and trade.
