Qatar, the pearl of the Arabian Gulf, celebrates its National Day

The State of Qatar celebrates on the 18th December the anniversary of the National Day for the accession of Sheikh Jassim Bin Mohamed Bin Thany. This is a day which should not be viewed as a mere link between present and past, but in the light of the achievements of the State of Qatar and its glorious nation over these decades, under the wise rule of H.H. Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa AlThany, the Emir of the State of Qatar.

The national strategy of the State of Qatar aimed primarily at the human being, the building of a law-governed state, the institutions, the implementation of the pillars of democracy and the sustainable development, making the State of Qatar become an example in enhancing transparency, justice, freedom of expression and human rights. This became a fact the moment Qatar was nominated host of the 2022 World Cup in recognition of its creativity, its success and its trust on international level, as well as its ability to host this sport event as happened with the previous international conferences.

The State of Qatar completed its comprehensive strategy of national development for the period 2011-2016 which covers the pillars of the national vision, reflecting the keenness of this nation to develop its economic infrastructure, to achieve economic diversification, to assure a better economic and financial administration, as well as to protect the environment. The GDP growth rate in 2009 was 18.5% and placed Qatar among the fastest growing economies worldwide, occupying the 17th place while previously ranked 22 in the Global Competitiveness Index, confirming its position as the best competitive country in the Middle East.

Perhaps what makes this event look different in comparison with the previous ones is that this year it will be held subsequently to the celebration of 20 years of diplomatic relations between Qatar and Romania in which the two countries agreed on the necessity of broadening the horizon for a productive economic cooperation, including investments in the field of agriculture, real estates, tourism, as well as the energetic field, exchange of experience, promoting the exchange of goods, in addition to the cultural, educational and scientific field meant to serve the common interests of the two countries.

As far as concerns the broadening of the horizons of cooperation between Qatar and Romania, not later than January 2011, we will assist at the inauguration of Qatar Airlines, our 5-star airline, with direct flights between Doha and Bucharest with view to strengthening the ties between the two countries.

Qatar looks with optimism towards a future in which it will justly be considered the pearl of the Arabian Gulf thanks to its wise leadership and to the authenticity of its people and its belief in peace and coexistence between peoples of different civilizations and religions.
