Qatar and Sweden to sign MoU on education


Ambassador of Sweden to Qatar Ewa Polano yesterday said that Qatar and Sweden were set to sign an MoU ‘very soon’ under which top universities of Sweden would offer one year master’s degree programme to Qatari graduates of engineering.

“Our cooperation in education sector primarily revolves around spirit of engineering and innovation in which we are at number one in the world,” she said while addressing a press conference on the eve of celebrating National Day of Sweden.



Later on, addressing the gathering at Swedish National Day celebrations,

she said that Qatar’s Minister of Education and Higher Education had recently paid a successful visit to Sweden and an MoU related to enhancing research and innovation cooperation between two countries was almost ready to be signed.

Minister of Education and Higher Education H E Mohammed bin Abdul Wahid Al Hammadi was chief guest at the glittering event. The ambassador lauded Qatar’s vision of transformation from oil-based economy to knowledge-based society and diversified-economy. “Sweden has already become a creative economy and Qatar’s vision makes both countries a perfect partner,” she added.

During the press conference, the ambassador said that annual trade between Qatar and Sweden was above $1bn. “There was some decline due to fall in oil prices but very soon it will again start growing. In near future, a high-level delegation from Qatar will visit Sweden in which a number of new agreements and MoUs on port-management, education, health, urban-planning and waste management are most likely to be signed,” she added.

Ewa Polano was accompanied by regional heads and officials of various Swedish companies like Volvo, Scania, Ikea, SAAB, ABB, Gac, Sensys Gatso Group etc in the press conference.
