Russia-Qatar economic links are in the early stages and developing, and the market represents an exciting potential to explore opportunities to collaborate and co-operate.”
The event will also cover social and cultural issues and technological development, and provide an opportunity to improve business collaboration between Qatar and Russia. Ooredoo’s executive senior management will use the event to meet some of Russia’s leading technology companies and telecom operators.
Sheikh Nasser Bin Hamad Bin Nasser Al Thani added: “As a proud Qatari company, we look forward to demonstrating our contribution to our country’s position as a telecommunications leader, and to establishing links with our counterparts in Russia for the benefit of both sides.”
