HE Abdullah bin Khalifa al-Attiyah, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Qatar National Archives (also known as Qatar Documentation House), reviewed the major role that the House plays in preserving the national memory and nourishing the cultural heritage of Qatar.

HE Abdullah al-Attiyah stressed that preserving heritage and history is an imperative for every nation that cherishes its identity.

HE al-Attiyah said: "The house, thanks to the high patronage of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, is continuing to fulfil its noble mission of recording the history of Qatar and highlighting its rich heritage. As it represents a beacon by which the present is enlightened and inspired , the future aspirations are determined by it."

His Excellency noted in a video broadcast by the House on its official account on the “x” platform that the Board of Trustees and all the House’s members are confident of achieving the goals in a reasonable period. Since the House is at the founding stage, this is a kind of challenge for all of its staff who are young Qataris who have the necessary desire and ambition to contribute more for the nation.

The next plan will focus on enhancing communication and co-operation with all government agencies, citizens, and some residents who have lived in the country for more than 40 years to help collect the legacy, HE the chairman pointed out.
