Doha, Qatar – Qatari Finance Minister Ali bin Ahmed Al-Kuwari on Monday discussed investment and economic cooperation with the visiting Pakistani counterpart Ishaq Dar.
They agreed to explore cooperation in the fields of science and technology, agriculture, and education.
Pakistani finance minister also extended invitation to Ali bin Ahmed Al Kuwari to visit Pakistan, a press statement issued at the end of the meeting said.
Separately, met with a delegation of QTerminals, led by its CEO Neville Bissett and discussed avenues of cooperation in logistics and port operations.
Qatar earlier this month provided $25 million to Pakistan to tide over its flood crisis. The dole was announced in a speech by Qatar’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Sultan bin Saad Al-Muraikhi at the International Conference on Climate Resilient Pakistan, held in Geneva.
Pakistan is desperately looking for financial help from friendly countries in view of the delay of the revival of the International Monetary Fund programme (IMF) which has brought it closer to default.
