The ten-member bloc of the Association of Southeast Asian nations (ASEAN) and the Gulf state of Qatar have emphasised their aim to forge closer ties and expand bilateral trade and investment.

During a meeting of the Qatari ambassador to Indonesia, Muhammad Khater Ibrahim Al Khater, with the new ASEAN Secretary-General Le Luong Minh at the ASEAN headquarters in Jakarta on February 16, both parties said they would explore further possibilities in investment and trade, particularly in the petroleum sector, food security and tourism.

They noted that maritime and air connectivity, which facilitates linkages between Qatar and ASEAN, are already well established considering the daily direct flights between Qatar and a number of ASEAN member states.

Minh noted his appreciation of Qatar’s desire to enhance relations and co-operation with ASEAN and the ASEAN member states and through the ASEAN-Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) cooperation framework.
