Qatar Tribune reported that Qatar is among the very first countries to have supported the Belt and Road Initiative that aims for wider links between Asia, Africa, and Europe, Minister of Transport and Communications HE Jassim bin Saif al Sulaiti has said. “Qatar signed several agreements and MoUs that support that initiative. This returns positively on Qatar’s economy and supports its plan to becoming a key strategic and economic hub in the region and the world,” Sulaiti said at the second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in Beijing on Friday.

“In Qatar, we look at the Belt and Road Initiative or the “Silk Road” from a strategic standpoint to link it with all our infrastructure such as ports and airports. This helps to reduce the time and cost of transporting goods. At the same time, it will be the road for the passage of such goods from China to all countries around the world,” he added.
