Substantial growth seen in Qatar investments in France

Substantial growth seen in Qatar investments in France:

"Qatari investments in France “have grown substantially,” according to a former official of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), who was in Qatar recently to promote the country’s bid to organise the World Exposition in 2025. Former WTO director general Pascal Lamy, who is France’s delegate for the 2025 Expo bid, told Gulf Times that Qatari investments in France have increased in the technology, real estate, distribution, and sport sectors, among others. Asked if the visit of Greater Paris Investment Agency (GPIA) president Pierre Simon in 2015, was instrumental in attracting more Qatari FDI to France, Lamy said, “I’ve looked at the numbers before coming here, if the pitch in 2015 was for Qatar to invest more in France, it has been successful.”"
