The ambassador also praised the effective procedures and measures taken by Qatar to face coronavirus, noting that since the beginning of the Covid-19 spread in March 2020, the State took a set of flexible proactive measures to prevent the spread of the virus, accompanied by financial stimulus policies for the affected sectors in an early response to any future repercussions or consequences of the pandemic.
These policies have significantly contributed to the resilience of Qatar's economy.
"We highly appreciate the success of the State of Qatar in making the remarkable recovery in the economy as well as controlling the Covid-19 pandemic to protect the lives of its people including hundreds of thousands of expatriates as well," he added.
The ambassador was deeply impressed with Qatar's great efforts in completing preparations for FIFA World Cup 2022 a year ahead of this event.
This event is one of the greatest sport events of the world for the first time to be held in the region, which can tell us all about Qatar's role, prestige and prosperity on the regional and international arena, he said.
"The Arab Cup represents a rehearsal for FIFA World Cup 2022. We strongly believe that with great care mentioned above, Qatar will be successful in hosting one of the most important events in the world next year," he said.
