Croatia to Open Embassy in Qatar

The Minister for Foreign and European Affairs Vesna Pusic after having consulted all the co-creator of Croatian foreign policy, in Doha opens Croatian embassy. The Government made a decision establishing a cost-of-living coefficient for Qatar for employees of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Qatar is the richest country in the world according to GDP per capita and it is interesting for Croatian construction companies. Approximately ten companies from Croatia presently are doing business in Qatar and the largest impediment to business is the visa regime. Until now Qatar residents had to travel to Egypt to obtain visas.

In May Qatar Airways started regular flights between Zagreb and the Doha which will certainly contribute to better cooperation between the two countries.
