(MENAFN- Gulf Times)
The ambassador of the Republic of Slovenia (non-resident) to the State of Qatar Mateja Prevolsek stressed that His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani's visit to Slovenia is an important opportunity to strengthen bilateral relations and develop areas of cooperation between her country and Qatar.
In exclusive statements to Qatar News Agency (QNA), Prevolsek indicated that the visit comes timely as the two countries celebrate the 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations this year.
'Throughout this period, we enjoyed friendly relations, marked by a large number of high-level visits in both directions as well as the meetings on the margins of international events. The meetings held and discussions conducted during this period reflect good understanding and mutual interest for cooperation on both sides,' Prevolsek said.
She stressed that Slovenia is looking forward to the visit of His Highness the Amir, not only in the context of the celebrations of the 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations but also, in maintaining regular exchanges between the two countries at the highest levels. The visit of HH Amir also offers both sides an opportunity to further examine possibilities of strengthening economic and investment cooperation, she added.
The exchanged visits between the two sides, the latest of which was by the President of Slovenia to the State of Qatar last March, reflect the common interest in cooperation in various fields and the exchange of political positions on various topics of mutual interest, including exchange on current global affairs, as is the Russian-Ukrainian war. The two countries also hold regular political consultations between the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, with the last round held on August 2021 in Ljubljana, the envoy noted.
She stressed that the areas of cooperation that can be established between the two countries are numerous, as Slovenia is focusing on a 'Green, Creative, Smart' economy that supports innovation and creates many opportunities to enhance cooperation in the field of green technology, waste and water management, IT, furniture industry, energy, engineering, health care and rehabilitation, logistics and distribution and other niche areas in which Slovenian companies excel such as robotics, fin-tech, cyber security, and biotechnology.
