The potential and momentum of hosting the 2022 FIFA World Cup is being harnessed as a catalyst for positive social change in Qatar in many areas, including workers’ welfare, a senior official said Monday.
A Khalifa International Stadium construction worker has spoken of his pride at helping build Qatar’s first 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament venue.
Al-Thawadi insisted that the illegal blockade of Qatar by Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt has had no impact on the massive infrastructure projects that are under way to prepare for the World Cup.
Secretary-General of the Supreme Committee for Legacy and Delivery Hassan al-Thawadi said that the design of the Thumama stadium was inspired by the 'gahfiya,' and reflects the harmony between the Qatari heritage they take pride in and Qatar's aspiration towards the future.
Qatar is committed to making continuous progress on the welfare of country's workers, the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC) secretary general Hassan al-Thawadi said on Wednesday.
