Audience afforded to the Lehendakari by the Heir Apparent, Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani
Collaboration between the Basque Country and Qatar has taken a significant first step forward after the meeting with the Heir Apparent, Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani, who has expressed to the Lehendakari his desire for the contact to move beyond the goodwill of speeches and to take concrete steps as soon as possible. One of the fruits of this meeting was the working committee, which will involve the Basque Government's Ministry of Industry and the corresponding Ministry in Qatar and will be responsible for defining and planning the areas in collaboration can take place and the projects that are developed as a result. Furthermore, the Emir has informed the Lehendakari of Qatar's interest in renewable energies and projects in the field of sustainability, education, health and biotechnology. "We are talking about significant investment, of resources, and about projects we would like to set up in the Basque Country", he said.
