On “The Diplomat” this week, we meet Ambassador of Qatar to S. Korea, Mohammed Al-Hayki.
Qatar is referred to as the “Pearl of the Middle East”. Backed by abundant energy resources such as oil and natural gas, Qatar has become a country that boasts huge economic power. With preliminary matches for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 being held, global interest is growing for Qatar. Qatar is preparing for another successful sports diplomacy, taking advantage of its experience in successfully hosting the 2006 Doha Asian Games. Lusail City, where the FIFA World Cup opening match will take place, is speeding up the construction of infrastructure along with the active entry of Korean companies. With Ambassador Mohammed Al-Hayki, we will discuss the goals of future bilateral relations.
