Qatari Delegation Visits Utah to Identify Trade and Investment Opportunities
A Qatari delegation, led by His Excellency Sheikh Meshal Bin Hamad Al-Thani, Ambassador Anne Patterson and Ambassador Khalid Bin Yousef Al-Sada, visited Utah on March 21 and 22 and was hosted by World Trade Center Utah. As part of their inbound trade mission to the state, the diplomats met with Gov. Gary R. Herbert and nearly 30 Utah companies to explore opportunities to expand trade and investment between Utah and Qatar.
"Qatar is a longstanding strategic partner of the United States and one of the largest foreign investors in our country," said Miles Hansen, president and CEO of WTC Utah. "We are excited by the level of interest in Utah shown by the Qatari delegation as is evident by the quality of the delegates we had the honor of hosting – including three separate officials with the rank of Ambassador in one delegation. During their time here, they made valuable connections which will further enhance the Utah-Qatar relationship and bring important foreign investment to our state. Now the real work begins to follow up on the momentum that was generated during the visit."
