The Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI), in cooperation with the Qatar National Tourism Council (QNTC), has unveiled investment opportunities for the private sector to develop three beach resorts in Fuwairit, Ben Ghanem and Ras Abrouq as part of the public-private partnership (PPP) framework to enhance tourism sector’s contribution to the non-oil economy.
The initiative to offer investment opportunities to establish beach resorts falls within the public-private partnership framework, which is part of the state’s efforts to achieve the Qatar National Vision 2030.
Qatar National Tourism Council Secretary-General and Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said, “As part of its mandate to diversify the economy by developing the tourism sector, QNTC works closely with partners across the public and private sectors to build products that showcase our country’s varied offerings and deliver service excellence. Through investment opportunities such as these, we engage the private sector in creating tourism offerings that tell Qatar’s story while providing unparalleled experiences to visitors and residents alike.”
Saleh bin Majid Al Khulaifi, Assistant Undersecretary for Commerce Affairs at MoCI, praised the level of cooperation between the ministry and QNTC.
This partnership allows government sector entities to focus on their specialties, preserve state resources and rationalise their use, he added.
