Decades of concerted investment in education have helped Qatar create a qualified workforce equipped with the skills needed to succeed in growing professions. The country’s literacy rate in 2019 was 99.2% of individuals 15 years old and above, while the gross enrolment rates for primary, preparatory and secondary education are all around 100% – a reflection of the mission to provide education for all. Education, research and training are key components of Qatar National Vision 2030. One goal of the vision is to increase the number of educational facilities from 354 schools in 2012/13 to 482 in 2018/19 and 524 in 2023/24. In line with the growth set out under the roadmap, the contribution of the education sector to GDP increased from 1.3% in 2012/13 to 3.3% in 2018/19.
