ISLAMABAD – Prime Minister Imran Khan is expected to pay a two-day official visit to Qatar later this month.

PM will hold talks with the Qatari leadership to explore business, trade and investment opportunities between the two countries.

Qatar has hinted at huge investment in Pakistan including the CPEC projects.

However, the dates of the visit and agenda of the talks are yet to be finalised.

During the visit, the prime minister will hold talks with Emir of Qatar and also hold meetings with some of the members of the Qatari cabinet. Both sides will formally sign an agreement under which Qatar will provide jobs to 100,000 Pakistani skilled and semi-skilled workers.

A number of agreements and MOUs are also expected to be signed during the visit. The prime minister will also meet top executives of Qatari companies besides addressing Pakistani community in Doha.

On Friday, the Pakistani government said it was considering renegotiating a 15-year LNG import deal with Qatar , as criticism of the liquefied natural gas import and processing terminals mounts within the PTI government.
