Ashghal is committed to support both the public and private manufacturing companies, producing materials for the country's construction industry, president Saad bin Ahmed al-Muhannadi said on Tuesday.
He was lauding the speech delivered by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani at the Advisory Council on Tuesday.
Ashghal president said Amir had upheld the pride of the Qatari people, and his address would boost the morale of both the present and future generations. This will help accelerate their efforts for the country's development, he said.
While reaffirming Ashghal's commitment to support the local manufacturing companies, al-Muhannadi specifically lauded their efforts and capacities which he said had helped the authority complete several infrastructure, health and educational projects ahead of schedule.
He remembered that Ashghal had completed the construction of 500km of Expressways until this year and 38 other infrastructure projects are under various stages of execution. Many of these projects were completed after the unjust blockade on Qatar began in June last year, said al-Muhannadi.
Ashghal chief also mentioned that there has been a three-fold increase in the number of construction materials produced in the country after the blockade started. "While only 55 materials were produced in Qatar before the blockade, now more than 160 materials are locally made," he said.
Similarly there has been substantial increase in the number of local companies producing construction materials. "There were only 48 such companies earlier while their number has shot up to 160 now," he added.
