THE HEAD OF STATE RECEIVES THE HEAD OF AFRICA-ASIA INVESTMENTS OF THE QATAR INVESTMENT AUTHORITY
The Head of State, His Excellency Ismail Omar Guelleh, received Sheikh Faysal Thani Al-Thani, Head of African-Asian Investments of the QIA or Qatar Investment Authority (Qatar’s sovereign wealth fund), at the Palace of the Republic, on Monday the 24th of July.
The visit of the Head of Africa-Asia Investments from the QIA to Djibouti, along with a high-level delegation, is related to the increasing interest of this major financial institution, one of the most significant in the world, to invest in the development of our country, reflecting its competitive advantages such as its prime geographical location, at the crossroads of several continents and strategic shipping lanes for world trade, and its exceptional political stability throughout the region. For Qatar’s sovereign fund, the interest in Djibouti stems from Djibouti’s established role as a platform for development infrastructure and economic potential, aiming to reconcile ambitious projects bridging the Arab world and the African continent.
In addition to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Economic Cooperation, Mr. Mahamoud Ali Youssouf, the President of the Djibouti Ports and Free Zones Authority (APZFD), Mr. Aboubaker Omar Hadi, and the Ambassador of the Republic of Djibouti to the State of Qatar, His Excellency Dayyib Doubad Robleh, also participated in this meeting with the President of Djibouti.
