Word from the Ambassador

It gives me immense pleasure to accord a warm welcome to the visitors of this Website. We wish to make it a successful window to apprise our visitors of the required important information which they seek to know about our beloved country and the distinguished relations our country enjoys with various countries of the World especially with the Republic of India.

Through this window, I would like to appreciate the close relations which bind the State of Qatar and the Republic of India together. These strong relations are witnessing tangible development in all aspects of cooperation especially in the political, economic and trade areas. I would also like to appreciate the big role which the Embassy of the State of Qatar is playing in introducing the investments opportunities available in both friendly countries, in addition to protecting and patronage of the interests of the citizens and businessmen of the State of Qatar in India.

This Website comes in the context of the support and the continued accreditation to these relations and providing the best services to the citizens. This site would serve as a bridge of communication between the State of Qatar and rest of the sisterly and friendly countries.
