Through a statement, the Foreign Ministry said that the main purpose of this visit would be to support trade and cooperation between these two countries in the energy field, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

“During the visit, the Czech Foreign Minister will present the priorities of the Czech Presidency of the Council of the EU in relation to the EU’s strategic cooperation with the Gulf and energy security,” the statement reads.

According to the Ministry, the topic of discussion at the meeting will also be that of Russia and the situation in Ukraine.

Ambassador Chalupsky also added that both countries have a lot in common when it comes to a strategic approach to the modernization of the economy through the construction of modern infrastructure, as well as digitalization and investment in the latest technologies.

Moreover, the ambassador announced that the main areas where the two countries aim for their cooperation are the tourism industry, especially in the hotel and spa business, and the development of the wider tourist infrastructure.
