Minister of Transport and Communications H E Jassim bin Saif Al Sulaiti has said that Hamad Port will contribute to increasing trade volumes between Qatar and world markets, creating job opportunities for youth, raising living standards. “The port will also improve Qatar’s competitiveness by transforming it into a regional business centre, which, in turn, will establish sustainable development for generations to come,” he said.
“This giant gateway carries the Father Emir’s name, which, in our memory and world memory, will be synonymous with the maker of miracles in this land.”
The Minister said this would not have been achieved without the guiding directives and unlimited encouragement from H H the Emir and the active support from Prime Minister and Interior Minister H E Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani. “Such great support has had a great impact in energising our drive and increasing the momentum for more work and dedication,” he said.
The Minister added that the Emir’s vision not only foresaw all hard possibilities of the future, but is also a motivator for us to face all of its challenges, pointing out that Hamad Port demonstrates this most vividly as it has played a very important role recently by providing direct marine shipping routes with key regional and world seaports in a short time, thus contributing to securing the goods, supplies and all that is needed for our vital projects.
“We have proven beyond any doubt how much we are flexible but steadfast when it comes to facing challenges without compromising our values, traditions and ambitions. We have all reasons today to keep our heads up, given the amount of difficulties we have overcome and the challenges we have faced. Today, we are stronger and more determined with even more options at hand. We do not wait for the sea to calm — we learn how to sail through the storm,” Al Sulaiti said.
