Qatar’s Prince Khalifa Al-Thani, a member of the royal family of Qatar, is expected to visit Israel this November, Israeli website Calcalist reports. His visit would mark the first time a member of the Qatari royal family officially visited the country.

Al-Thani’s visit will revolve around the launch of the Israel-Palestine Commercial Arbitration Center, a venture led by the President of the International Chamber of Commerce, Oren Shachor, and Palestinian Arab businessman Munib al-Masri, which is meant to solve disputes between Israeli and Palestinian businesses for amounts of up to seven million shekels.

The visit was set during a meeting last weekend between Al-Thani and Shachor to promote commercial relations between the two countries.

According to the Calcalist, the Qatari government is interested in strengthening its local high-tech sector by acquiring knowledge and technology and by encouraging the Israeli high-tech companies to export jobs and development projects to Qatar, rather than to India or Eastern Europe.
