    (ANSAmed) - DOHA, APRIL 3 - Italian Premier Giuseppe Conte on Wednesday told reporters at the Italian embassy in Doha that talks with emir al-Thani during his ongoing visit to Qatar ''were not only cordial but very productive''. The meeting ''strengthens the friendship and cooperation between the two countries. There are excellent opportunities to boost economic and commercial exchanges''. ''With the emir we did not sign any agreement, today was a political day, of exchange between the leadership of the two countries in which we provided the foundation for future commercial agreements'', he explained.

    Along with the interest shown by Italian companies for Qatar, ''the emir as well was interested in investments in Italy and this pleases us, foreign investors are welcome'', continued the premier. ''From Eni to Snam, from Fincantieri to Leonardo, we have leading companies worldwide for their technological know-how which are already working very productively in this country. From this productive dialogue'' between leaders from the two countries, said the prime minister, ''I expect our companies to vouch for Qatar's attention towards our country''.

    Conte then met with Italian entrepreneurs in Doha.

    Before going to the Italian embassy, Conte visited the Decc Center, the central station of Doha's new subway made by Salini Impregilo with the participation of other companies that subcontracted work like Costruzioni (for the stations' design) and iGuzzini (lighting). (ANSAmed).
