Despite the unjust siege imposed on Qatar in June this year, the country remains as an attractive destination for many international investors, a senior official of the Qatar Chamber has said.
The illegal blockade imposed on Qatar by the Saudi led bloc has had a positive effect on Ajyal, Doha Film Institute (DFI) CEO Fatma al-Remaihi has said.
Qatar has maintained a moral high ground over the last six months of the siege, ensuring that people living in the blockading countries are not harmed by the crisis, Ministry of Interior's senior project manager Khalifa Khan told Qatar Urdu Radio’s live show Haqeeqat.
Qatar has affirmed that it is fighting terrorism and supporting its security fighter, citing testimony of the international community as a whole.
Qatar has made important achievements this year in the areas of security, world peace, competitiveness, combating the financing of terrorism and money laundering, to earn the confidence of international institutions and bodies.
The blockade does not seem to have much of an impact on contract awards in Qatar, Meed Business Review said and noted that since June, the value of contracts let in the country has totalled nearly $3.1bn.
The Secretary General of the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy Hassan al-Thawadi has termed the illegal Saudi-led blockade of Qatar as “a sad page in the history of the region” while insisting there won’t be any white elephants as a result of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
National Human Rights Committee Chairman Dr Ali bin Smaikh al-Marri has urged the Spanish government to put more pressure on the blockading countries to force them to end their grave violations of human rights.
The plans of the siege countries, including military threats and attempt to overthrow the regime in Qatar, reflect deliberate intentions to attack Qatar, and a threat to international peace and security, the National Human Rights Committee (NHRC) chairman Dr Ali bin Smaikh al-Marri said.
The illegal economic blockade on Qatar continues to augment and provide more opportunities for home-based entrepreneurs in the country to promote and market their products, it is learnt.
