The sustainable development of our country in all its aspects, whether human, economic or social, reflects the stated aims and objectives of our political leadership, led by the wise vision of His Highness Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani, Emir of Qatar.
Transportation and communication play a vital role in all areas of modern life. They ensure the delivery of goods and services for individuals and communities, underpin the growth of other sectors, such as agriculture, industry, mining and trade and drive the development of modern cities, societies and economies.
The establishment of the Ministry of Transport and Communications and its mandates in accordance with Emiri Decree No. 4 of 2016 is an expression of the goals that we all seek for our State in line with Qatar National Vision 2030. The Ministry confirms its commitment to hard and diligent work through projects and programs that aim to build a land, maritime and aviation transportation system founded on the latest technologies and best practices in the sector.
The Ministry also performs a critical and far-reaching role in overseeing the development of the information and communications technology sector to make it more vibrant and advanced, and in creating a diversified economy that will benefit all the people of Qatar, as well as developing e-government programs and boosting capacity and digital literacy to foster a technology-friendly environment that introduces innovative approaches to how we communicate, live and work.
The Ministry invites all public and private entities to cooperate in order to continue to develop our homeland and achieve the Qatar National Vision 2030.
Jassim Saif Ahmed Al Sulaiti
Minister of Transport and Communications
