QR1bn fund allocated for Doha facelift in the coming years

Doha, an already impressive modern city, will get a another facelift in the next five years, owing to QR1bn fund offered by the government for its beautification and development, revealed Mohamed bin Abdullah al-Rumaihi, the Minister of Municipality and Environment.

There is great interest in developing the towns located along the outskirts of the city. After the development of Al Wakrah and Al Khor, plans are on for the development of Al Sheehaniya and for partial development of Al Shamal, he pointed out.

Development of Doha City includes demolition of old buildings, broadening of streets, and urban development of neighbourhoods.

Al-Rumaihi further explained that he has instructed the urban development sector to be strict in abiding by the relevant statutes and creation of Furjan markets and playgrounds for convenience of the people.

The Minister said that the unjust blockade imposed on the country resulted in intensifying work and doubling production in the agricultural field, improving food production and security.

The Ministry of Municipality and Environment supports modern farming methods that help save water, land and fertiliser. A project for shrimp farming would be launched next year, the Minister said. The fish farming project at Ras Matbakh would provide 4million fishlings a year. Other projects at Al Sheehaniya aim to breed livestock and maintain the pedigree of camels, sheep and goats.
