The Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Policy and Planning Department (MOFA) organized the inaugural Pearl Global Future Dialogue in collaboration with Strategic Education International in the United States. Lolwah bint Rashid Al Khater, Qatar’s Assistant Foreign Minister, said that the dialogue is aimed at better understanding the critical issues facing Qatar and the United States in these challenging times, as well as to enhance cooperation between the two countries.
Such discussions would enable Qatar, as a major non-NATO ally of the United States, to better serve the global community in this area. The meeting takes place as a new war and global geopolitical competition intensify. Additionally, the world is emerging from a pandemic, and businesses want to return to thriving levels.
According to Dr. Khalid bin Fahad Al Khater, Director of the Policy and Planning Department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the dialogue’s objective is to strengthen Qatar-US strategic bilateral relations through the participation of elites in the political, security, and economic fields of both countries. This dialogue is viewed as an informal platform for consolidating bilateral relations, according to him.
