Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the President and CEO of Qatar Petroleum and Chairman of Qatargas, is to hold talks with senior executives of major Japanese energy companies during a working visit to Tokyo, Japan.
Mr Al-Kaabi, who is accompanied by senior Qatar Petroleum and Qatargas officials, will meet with senior officials at Chubu Electric, Jera, Mitsui, Chiyoda Corp., Idemitsu, Cosmo Oil Co., LNG Japan, Mitsui & Co. and Marubeni Corp.
Meetings are also scheduled with financial institutions such as Bank of Tokyo – Mitsubishi UFJ and Japan Bank for International Cooperation; utility companies such as Tokyo Electric (TEPCO), Kansai Electric, and Tohoku Electric; and other major companies and shipping lines such as NYK Line, Lino, MOL, K Line, and Itochu.
The visit, which is part of an annual tradition, is designed to follow up on all issues that relate to the existing cooperation and business relationships and ways to enhance them.
