President Rodrigo Roa Duterte arrived at the Emiri Terminal of the Hamad International Airport in Doha via Philippine Airlines chartered flight PR001 for a visit to the State of Qatar on April 14-16, 2017.
Upon disembarkation, the President was welcomed by the Philippine Embassy officials to Qatar led by Ambassador Alan L. Timbayan, as well as representatives from the Qatari government.
This is the first trip of President Duterte to the state as the new Chief Executive of the Republic of the Philippines. He recently capped off his State Visits to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Kingdom of Bahrain from April 10-14, 2017.
The Emiri Terminal is known to be one of the most attractive facilities within the airport complex. Designed with a combination of eccentric and classic Arabian elements, the futuristic facility is only utilized by the Royal Family and other VIPs.
President Duterte then proceeded to the Four Seasons Hotel Doha located in the diplomatic area of the capital city for a private time.
