During a dialogue session on Wednesday within the work of the Qatar Economic Forum, Powered by Bloomberg, Al Thawadi said, the work is under way to implement the rest of the projects related to some roads that witnessed delays in implementation as a result of the circumstances that various countries of the world went through as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and global economic fluctuations.
