As Qatar’s economy has grown, so has demand for information, driving tremendous progress in the media industry and related sectors. The popularity and reach of the media has also had an impact on the advertising and communications industry, which has seen double-digit growth over the past five years. In a bid to expand the media sector, Qatar is now planning to establish a dedicated media and communications free zone called Qatar Media City outside Doha. Going forward, the country’s winning bid to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup is set to lend a huge boost to sports coverage.

This chapter includes an interview with Haya Al Nassr, Director of Communication Directorate, Qatar Foundation.
