Qatar`s sovereign wealth funds, stocked with assets of approximately $100 billion, is seeking a license under China’s Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor (QFII) programme to invest $5 billion in the country. The amount is far above the current cap of $1 billion set by the QFII.

Chinese official news agency Xinhua reported that Qatar wants to invest in the contry’s security and bond market, partly using its proceeds from LNG exports to China. Beijing currently imports almost five million tonnes of LNG annually from Qatar.

Qatar is also eyeing more direct investments in China. State-owned Qatar Petroleum is already operating a refinery together with China’s CNPC, with a combined investment volume of $15 billion.

According to Xinhua, the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) will help complete the application process “as soon as possible”.

Qatar’s minister of energy and industry, Mohammed Bin Saleh Al Sada, was quoted as saying that Qatar was confident about China’s long term economic growth prospects and that the country’s major listed companies had good investment value.
