“To us and to everyone, Qatar after June 2017 is different from what it was 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 HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al Thani has said.
Emir who chaired the cabinet’s meeting at Emiri Diwan talked about future steps amid crisis and stressed the importance of next phase. He spoke about the importance of continuity in progress towards achieving Qatar National Vision 2030.
The Emir focused on self-reliance in food, national security, economy and medicine. He stressed on the need of investing in the positive spirit, solidarity and motivation, which have characterised Qatar’s citizens and residents during the Gulf crisis.
The ministers were told to focus on domestic efforts to consolidate national economy and security along with the improvement in health and educational sectors.
Speaking about the field of economy and investment, and the importance of diversifying the sources of income, the Emir directed that the laws 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 ministers were thanked by the emir for their efforts and hard work during the crisis. He once again reaffirmed the remarks he made in his speech regarding Qatar’s readiness to resolve the Gulf crisis through dialogue.
The emir thinks that in order to reach to an agreement, there should be no dictations or interference in the national sovereignty and internal affairs of any country.
The Cabinet stressed that the clear and wise directives of the Emir will act as a working programme for the government in the next phase, which requires mobilisation of energies and self-reliance.
