QATAR 2022 WILL LEAVE BEHIND LASTING LEGACIES

DOHA, Qatar, Mar 3 – Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC), will tackle head on, the crucial challenges it will face, in the ongoing preparations for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar.

This was the message delivered by SC Secretary-General, Hassan Al Thawadi, at the inaugural session of the one-day seminar, “Personal Leadership in a Rapidly Changing World” organised by the Doha-based Middle East Leadership Academy (MELA).

Al Thawadi highlighted that, this approach would allow Qatar to leave behind economic, human and social legacies, that the country and the rest of the world can be proud of.

The seminar is a curtain raiser to a 10-day leadership workshop, Leadership Master class, for 40 accomplished Middle East corporate executives and government officials beginning on Thursday (today).

“The SC has a unique mandate and is working hand in hand with public and private stakeholders, to ensure the projects are delivered on time and to the highest standards. These initiatives will transform Qatar and prepare the nation for decades to come,” he said.

He added that, the coordination between stakeholders will ensure that the infrastructure projects will leave behind a significant economic legacy for Qatar.

“We have always been committed in our belief that the 2022 FIFA World Cup must also serve as a catalyst for human and social legacies,” he said, adding that the “2022 FIFA World Cup is about change.”

Sultan bin Rashid Al Khater, Under-secretary of the Ministry of Economy and Commerce, and Michiel Kool, Vice President of Shell Qatar, were the other panellists in the introductory session of the seminar.

“Encouraging dialogue, debate and knowledge transfer, among the best minds in Qatar and the region is vital for leadership development,” said Al-Khater.
