Welcome to the internet portal of the Embassy of the Republic of Turkey in Doha. This user-friendly site is intended to provide you with the necessary information you are looking for and to give an insight into Turkish-Qatari relations.
It is a great pleasure and privilege for me to serve in Doha as the Ambassador of the Republic of Turkey to the State of Qatar, at a time this country is undergoing massive social and economic development.
Based on historical and cultural affinities, Turkey’s relationship with the brotherly State of Qatar is strong, deep rooted and broad. People-to-people contact and cultural relations have been intensified during recent years. The Turkish Embassy takes pride in contributing to this upward momentum.
In the last few years economic relations between Turkey and Qatar have gained new impetus. Trade volume between the two countries exceeded one billion dollars this year. The total outlay of projects undertaken by Turkish companies in Qatar has reached 8.3 billion Dollars. More than 7000 Turkish citizens living in Qatar also play a constructive role in enhancing relations between the two countries.
The rapid developments, which have been taking place in Qatar in every domain under the wise and visionary leadership of His Highness Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani, the Emir of the State of Qatar, have paved the way for such an encouraging result in our bilateral relations.
Those relations were boosted by numerous high-level visits that took place in recent years. To mention a few; H.E. Abdullah Gul, the President of the Republic and H.E. Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Prime Minister, the Speaker of the Turkish Grand National Assembly and a number of Turkish ministers visited Qatar, while H.H the Emir, H.E. the Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of Qatar and Ministers paid many visits to Turkey in the last two years. We expect this trend to continue in 2010.
Given the political will on both sides, I believe that relations between Turkey and Qatar will further improve in every field in the years to come.
Thanking you for visiting our website, I seize this opportunity to extend to you, on behalf of my colleagues and my own, greetings and best wishes.
