"Most promising areas for trade-and-economic and investment cooperation between Tatarstan and Qatar are the oil and gas sector, oil refining, joint energy projects," she said.
Apart from that, Tatarstan is interested in selling products of such companies as Kamaz, Kazan Helicopter Plant, Kazancompressormash and Nizhnekamskneftekhim on the Qatari market.
