The air–transport agreement between Slovenia and Qatar signed

The Slovenian Minister of Transport, Dr Patrick Vlačič, is currently on a working visit to Qatar, where he is accompanying the President of the Republic of Slovenia, Dr Danilo Türk.

The purpose of the visit is to pursue political dialogue between Slovenia and Qatar and further strengthen bilateral cooperation in the economy, transport, higher education, science, health and humanitarian projects. Dr Vlačič took the opportunity to sign an air-transport agreement between the Governments of the two countries. The bilateral air transport agreement will enable the establishment of a direct air service between Slovenia and Qatar, which will be beneficial to the Slovenian economy. The direct air service will open up new opportunities for tourism, which is particularly in Slovenia's interests in this time of economic crisis.
