British Expertise are delighted to be hosting a breakfast briefing with Michael O'Neill, HMA to the State of Qatar.
As Ambassador to the State of Qatar, Michael is responsible for all aspects of the relationship between the UK and Qatar. Michael joined the British Embassy in May 2012.
Michael joined the FCO in 1994 after a three-year secondment from the Ministry of Defence at the United Kingdom Delegation to NATO. He has focussed for most of his career on multi-lateral security and economic issues, and latterly on post-conflict stabilisation in Africa and Afghanistan. He has also been speech writer to two Foreign Secretaries. Michael has served in Washington and at the UK missions to the United Nations in New York and the European Union in Brussels. Most recently he spent three years as the United Kingdom痴 Special Representative for Sudan, followed by 18 months as Head of Mission at the UK-led Provincial Reconstruction Team in Helmand, Afghanistan.
On his appointment as Ambassador to Qatar, Michael said 的 am excited by the opportunity to help further strengthen the United Kingdom's thriving relations with Qatar, which cover so many areas from cooperation on political issues to expanding bilateral trade and investment and from extensive educational links to a developing cultural alliance. On a personal level I am delighted to return to Doha, having visited several times as the United Kingdom痴 Special Representative for Sudan. At a broader level, Qatar has firmly established itself over recent years as a leading actor on the most pressing regional and global issues, and as a major international economic player. I look forward to contributing to a growing strategic partnership between the United Kingdom and the State of Qatar to advance shared interests."
