The Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) shared its intent to invest $10 billion for infrastructure improvements in the United States. Sheikh Abdullah bin Mohamed bin Saud al-Thani, chief executive of the QIA, delivered the message to U.S. officials in Doha last week.
The QIA, a sovereign fund, previously indicated its interest in investing $35 billion in unspecified projects in the U.S. between 2016 and 2021. It wasn’t clear if the recently announced $10 billion was part of the larger amount, or a separate investment. No time frame was provided. Analysts believe the Qatari investment could help grow ties between the incoming administration of President-Elect Donald Trump and Middle Eastern countries.
