Transport

Qatar 2020 - Transport

The transport sector has played a key strategic role in the growth of Qatar’s economy, and in the decade since the country won the bid to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup, tens of billions of dollars have been pumped into its infrastructure. With significant new investment in its seaports and airport, the transport sector’s international gateways are set to see a step change in the volumes of cargo and passengers they are able to handle. Within the country, a system of movement that originally evolved to suit drivers, cars and lorries is rapidly being transformed into a multi-modal urban transport network that is fit for future needs. This chapter contains interviews with Abdulla bin Abdulaziz bin Turki Al Subaie, Minister of Municipality and Environment and CEO and Managing Director, Qatar Rail; and Abdulrahman Essa Al Mannai, President & CEO, Milaha.
