MOI Launches Open Data Website

The Ministry of Interior (MoI) has inaugurated the open data website, the first government department in Qatar to launch this service and provide a specialized data website for the public.

The launch of the website is in line with the Open Data Policy of the Ministry of Transport and Communications (2014) as well as the Government’s Digital 2020 Strategy for Transparency, Efficiency and Community Participation.

The policy aims to make information and data accessible to everyone, to reuse and distribute them without restrictions and with ease.

According to this policy, the Ministry of Interior’s website includes approved data packages such as traffic data, road accidents and other data of public interest and falls under the purview of the ministry.
