Turkish, Qatari central banks sign cooperation pact

The central banks of Turkey and Qatar have signed a memorandum of understanding to develop bilateral cooperation in Qatar’s capital Doha, the Turkish Central Bank announced on Nov. 16.

The pact was signed by Turkish Central Bank Governor Murat Çetinkaya and Qatari Central Bank Governor Sheikh Abdulla Bin Saoud al-Thani under the auspices of visiting President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Qatari Emir Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, the statement said.

 The Bank stressed that under the pact there are plans to organize joint training programs, conferences, seminars, workshops, temporary appointment programs and mutual study visits.

 The Turkish Central Bank signs such pacts “with foreign central banks in the framework of its strategic objective of improving international relations by developing bilateral relations,” it stated.

 To date the Bank has signed memorandums of understanding with 25 foreign central banks, it added.

 Turkey and Qatar have become increasingly close in recent years, and as part of Erdoğan’s visit to Doha agreements were also signed in a variety of areas including tourism, law, meteorology, agriculture, food, media, science and humanitarian aid.
