(MENAFN) Boeing’s president for the Middle East, Paul Kinscherff, said that the company will soon have a base in Qatar, Gulf News reported.,

Kinscherff said that Boeing is currently operating from Dubai, but given the circumstances, opening a full-fledged office in Qatar has become a necessity. And it�s going to become a reality soon,
