Al Qahtani noted that the visit will also address ways to support and enhance cooperation between Qatar and Netherlands in the fields of economy, investment, and scientific research, especially since the Netherlands is one of the leading countries in the field of technology and sustainability, and is an interest by Qatar in opening horizons of cooperation with the Netherlands and benefit from its expertise.
