Qatar is 100% committed to its role in developing Europe's tallest mixed-use skyscraper in London, its central bank governor said on Wednesday.

Speaking at a media update on progress of the 310-metre office and residential Shard project, Sheikh Abdulla Bin Saoud Al-Thani said he was excited by the rate of construction and reiterated the state's confidence in London's economic future.

Sheikh Al-Thani said: 'The State of Qatar is firmly behind these projects which reflect our belief that the United Kingdom continues to offer an attractive, stable and robust economic environment.'
