Doha – HE Prime Minister of the Republic of Finland Juha Sipila has hailed the remarkable developments achieved by the State of Qatar over the past 20 years, while pointing to bilateral relations, cooperation and excellent channels of dialogue between country with Qatar.

The Prime Minister of Finland said direct flights between Doha and Helsinki have greatly helped in developing the relations between the two countries since they were launched in October 2016, hoping that they will further cement cooperation between companies from both countries.
