Qatar to invest £10 billion in key sectors in UK

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Tuesday hosted Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Emir of Qatar, and the two leaders signed a new Strategic Investment Partnership that will see Doha invest up to £10 billion over the next five years in key sectors of the UK economy, including fintech, zero-emissions vehicles, life sciences and cyber security.

The Prime Minister and Emir discussed the upcoming 2022 Qatar World Cup this winter, and the UK committed significant new military and counter-terrorism support. A joint UK-Qatar Typhoon Squadron will provide additional air security, and the Ministry of Defence with advanced venue search training and operational planning support.

Johnson said: “The new UK-Qatar Strategic Investment Partnership will create quality job opportunities across the country in key sectors, delivering on our vision of economic growth through trade and investment”.
