As one of the fastest growing economies in the world, Qatar has rapidly become an important destination on the global stage. Categorized as one of the richest nations in resources and culture, Qatar possesses the will and determination to overcome all circumstances and position itself as a unique destination on the global platform.
Qatar Tourism Authority’s (QTA) task is no less than to offer residents and tourists alike a wide set of events in addition to positioning Qatar as a world class tourism hub for business, leisure, culture, education and sport.
Ideal for business, Doha offers a unique combination of support services and hospitality as well as top international award winning leisure provision to appeal to the business traveler.
Qatar is home to the finest cultural landmarks, some even dating back to thousands of years demonstrating the nation’s rich history and culture. In addition, Qatar has a series of world-class museums that house some of the world’s finest art collections. At its cultural heart, Doha offers art galleries, music concerts, opera and theatre for visitors to enjoy.
Education is one of the country’s most significant pillars and major focus. As part of its mission to become the region’s center of education and research and development, Qatar has invested a great deal to create a rich knowledge sharing community. Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development and its research and its scientific research centers is a unique testament to the country’s goal to offer students the opportunity to study at some of the world’s top academic institutions and now houses no less than 12 Universities.
Sports also play a major role in Doha life as our nation brings the world together through sports. Qatar has taken central stage on the platform of international events and is home to a wide number of world- class, state of the art sports training centers. The biggest testimonial to its advancement in the field of sports is its win of the upcoming 2022 World Cup Bid, the event that will alter not only Qatar’s but also the region’s global position.
