Greece maintains friendly relations with Qatar, which were established officially in 1973. Our country has had an Embassy in Doha since 2007, while Qatar opened its Embassy in Athens in 2008.

Political Relations

There is mutual will to further develop the already very good bilateral relations between Greece and Qatar through exchanges of visits on the highest political level and supplementation of the contractual framework between the two sides. There is a Memorandum of Understanding in effect between the two Foreign Ministries for political consultations. On 30 January 2013, the two countries signed an Agreement on cultural cooperation and a Memorandum of Understanding in the Sports sector, while the Qatari Chamber of Commerce and the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV) have signed an Agreement on the setting up of a Greek-Qatari Business Council.

Bilateral agreements have also been signed on military issues, along with texts on technical arrangements of limited duration regarding the implementation of the participation of Qatari Cadets in exercises. Cooperation between the two countries in the defence industry was further strengthened by the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Hellenic Aerospace Industry, the Hellenic Vehicle Industry and Qatar.

A number of Greeks live in Qatar, most of whom are businesspersons or work for companies.
