Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Kuwaiti Ministry of Information – Tourism Sector, to reinforce cooperation between the two countries in the field of tourism development.

The agreement was signed by QTA Acting Chairman Hassan Al Ibrahim, and Tourism Sector Undersecretary Jassim Al Habib, who signed on behalf of the Kuwaiti government. The signing took place at the Tourism Sector headquarters in Kuwait City.

The agreement paves the way for long-term collaboration between Qatar and Kuwait, through the sharing of knowledge and expertise in relation to tourism planning and development, in addition to joint promotion of the two destinations through shared marketing material.

Each side will also invite citizens and residents to enjoy vacations and trips. Joint familiarisation trips to both destinations will also be organised for media and travel trade. In addition, Qatari and Kuwaiti officials will be working together to attract investments into the tourism sector which benefit both sides.

The signing of this new agreement comes amid strengthening ties between Qatar and Kuwait, and is a natural next step following many years of efforts to energise the two countries’ joint tourism.
