The Emir spoke about the future directions of Qatar in light of the current crisis. “To us and to everyone, Qatar in June 2017 is different from Qatar in the past. We are proud of our history, but what happened in June 2017 has strengthened us and pushed us to work more for the country,” the Emir said.
The Emir discussed about the next phase and also the need to continue the progression towards Qatar National Vision 2030. It called for the self-reliance in national security, economy, food and medicine.
He focused on investing in positive spirit, solidarity and motivation in giving and achievement, which have characterised Qatar’s citizens and residents during the Gulf crisis. He asked the cabinet to promote and encourage the continuity of team work and cooperation shown by the citizens and residents during the blockade.
The ministers were asked to concentrate on domestic efforts in the coming phase and strengthen the national fronts in the economic, security, health and educational fields.
Speaking about the field of economy and investment and the importance of diversifying sources of income, the emir directed that the laws related to that field be reviewed and implemented as soon as possible and that spending be rationalised in next year’s budget without affecting Qatar’s main development projects and their quality.
Meanwhile, the emir thanked the ministers for their hard work and efforts amid crisis. The emir reaffirmed his remarks that he made during his speech regarding Qatar’s readiness to resolve the crisis through dialogue.
