DUBAI, (Reuters) – Qatar, which yesterday agreed to sell 25 percent of its stock market to NYSE Euronext, is in talks with stock exchanges in London and Germany about new partnerships, a Qatar Investment Authority executive said.

“Qatar is in talks with the London Stock Exchange and the bourse in Germany to build new strategic partnerships,” Al Arabiya Television reported on Wednesday, citing Hussein al-Abdullah, executive board member of the QIA, Qatar’s $60 billion sovereign wealth fund.

“This will induce a leap in Qatar’s financial market through a linkage with global markets,” Abdullah said, without giving further details on the nature of the partnerships.
