(ANSA) - Rome, September 18 - The Arab emirate Qatar not
only has a GDP that consistently ranks among the highest in the
world, it has a bustling and dynamic society that inspires other
regional counterparts and attracts investments far and wide.
Ambassador Al-Moraikhi visited ANSA's headquarters on via
della Dataria in Rome for the signing of a media exchange
agreement.
"Qataris are news hungry and world savvy at the same time.
And at the same time, they have so much to tell," Al-Moraikhi
said.
"There is a widely diffused appreciation for Italy and all
things Italian, especially cuisine. Most Qataris are familiar
enough with Italian food to be able to pick out the region
specialties come from and give some background on the dish,"
explains Al-Moraikhi.
With the sea as a backdrop and coastal venues, many
restaurants have opted for a 'Costa Smeralda' style theme that
evoke a jet-set Sardinian ambience.
But the love for Italian culture and goods has not
overshadowed the deep cultural pride Qataris have for their
country.
"A visitor needs days to see the Museum of Islamic Art and
Museum of Qatari history, both for their size and content,"
enthuses the ambassador.
Indeed, the bone-white I. M. Pei-designed Museum of Islamic
art, opened in 2008, dazzled the international museum
establishment and the museum of modern Arab art presents a
collection that spans the mid-19th-century to the present.
Qatar is considered the sporting showcase for the Middle
East.
So much so that following the successful 2006 Doha Asian
Games, in December 2010 Qatar was selected to host the 2022 FIFA
World Cup. It will be the first country in the Middle East to
host the tournament.
"There are endless opportunities for Qatar and Italy to
come together. We look forward to all that is to come,"
concluded the ambassador.
