The Qatar Olympic Committee (QOC) has signed an agreement with the Indonesian Olympic Committee to boost collaboration between the two organisations.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed on February 10.

Sheikh Saud bin Ali al-Thani, QOC first vice-president, met with Indonesian Olympic Committee President Raja Sapta Oktohari to sign the agreement.

Jassim bin Rashid Al-Buenain and Ferry J Kono, the secretary generals of the QOC and Indonesian Olympic Committee, were also present.

The agreement reportedly covers the exchange of technical and administrative expertise.

The MoU will reportedly help boost the expertise across national associations and the National Olympic Committees in the two nations.

Both countries have announced plans in recent years to bid for future editions of the Olympic Games.

In November, Indonesian President Joko Widodo reportedly ordered his Cabinet to prepare a dedicated plan for the country's bid to host the 2032 Olympics in Jakarta.

The proposed bid follows on from Jakarta hosting the 2018 Asian Games with co-host Palembang.

Qatar has also announced its intention to bid for the Olympic and Paralympic Games, potentially as early as 2032.

The gulf nation is already set to host the 2030 Asian Games.

Doha was awarded the 2030 Asian Games at the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) General Assembly in December.

Qatar's capital secured 27 votes compared to Riyadh's 10, with eight abstentions.

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia’s capital city, was awarded the 2034 Asian Games following the vote.
