She was accompanied during the visit to Sony Corporation by Qatar Foundation's President of Research and Development Faisal Al Suwaidi and Executive Director of Qatar Computing Research Institute Dr Ahmed Elmagarmid.

The visit comes after a series of meetings held in Doha last year between senior executives at Sony Corporation and senior Qatari officials, including Northwestern University in Qatar.

Sheikha Moza also met eight Qatari students. The students said that the reasons for choosing Japan to complete their higher education is its progress in the fields of scientific research and engineering, as well as their willingness to recognise the Japanese unique culture which has some similar values of Arab culture and traditions.

Sheikha Moza confirmed her support and encouragement to the Qatari students in Japan to continue their educational journey and then return to Qatar with, not only the academic certificate, but also with the positive Japanese customs.
