Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani paid an official visit to Mexico on the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

Sheikh Al-Thani will hold a meeting with President Enrique Peña Nieto to review the status of relations between Mexico and the State of Qatar, and discuss various issues on the international agenda.

The main issues to be addressed include promoting greater trade and investment flows, air connectivity, cooperation in strategic sectors such as oil and energy, scientific and technical education, and cultural and tourism exchanges.

The visit to Mexico by Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani is the first by a Qatari head of state to our country since diplomatic ties were formalized on June 30, 1975.
