Qatar is a wealthy country with a strong economy. The country has a population of over 2 million people and is a major natural gas exporter.
Qatar is also a major financial center with a strong track record of investing in developing countries.
The deepening of economic ties between Somalia and Qatar would benefit both countries. Somalia would gain access to Qatar’s expertise and financial resources, which would help the country to rebuild its infrastructure and economy.
Qatar would gain access to Somalia’s natural resources and strategic location, which would help the country to expand its trade and investment opportunities.
