Qatar 2019 - Transport

Guided by plans laid out in Qatar National Vision 2030, the country is on track to upgrade and connect its land, air and sea networks in 2019. The first trains are set to run on the new Doha Metro network, while dozens of expressway bridges, underpasses and intersections are due for completion. Organisation efforts for the 2022 FIFA World Cup have added urgency to the drive to improve transport connections while passenger and freight numbers are expected to grow at the country’s new international air and seaports. The increased traffic through these facilities is spurring the development of free zones and logistics centres, which are expected to create opportunities for entrepreneurs and investors. This chapter contains interviews with Abdulla Nasser Turki Al Subaey, President, Civil Aviation Authority; and Abdulla bin Abdulaziz bin Turki Al Subaie, Minister of Municipality and Environment; and CEO and Managing Director, Qatar Rail.
