Visit from Qatar

Yesterday, the Grand Duke received the Qatari Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabr Al-Thani, who is currently on a state visit to Luxembourg, at Château de Berg. The Hereditary Grand Duke and Princess Alexandra were also in attendance.

Extending the bilateral relations between two nations was discussed during the audience.

On a similar note, the final contract between Cargolux, one of the world's leading cargo airlines originating from the Grand Duchy, and Qatar Airways were signed this morning. Qatar Airways now holds 35% shares. For more information about this topic please refer to the Tageblatt article.

Interestingly, the Grand Ducal family was involved in the deal; the idea was first introduced when the Hereditary Grand Duke visited Qatar back in February and proceeded during the Grand Duke's visit to the emirate in May.
