Minister’s Message

The sustainable development of our country in all its aspects, whether human, economic or social, reflects the stated aims and objectives of our political leadership, led by the wise vision of His Highness Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani, Emir of Qatar.

Transportation play a vital role in all areas of modern life. They ensure the delivery of goods and services for individuals and communities, underpin the growth of other sectors, such as agriculture, industry, mining and trade and drive the development of modern cities, societies and economies.

The establishment of the Ministry of Transport and its mandates in accordance with Amiri Decision No. 57 of 2021 is an expression of the goals that we all seek for our State in line with Qatar National Vision 2030. The Ministry confirms its commitment to hard and diligent work through projects and programs that aim to build a land, maritime and aviation transportation system.
The Ministry invites all public and private entities to cooperate in order to continue to develop our homeland and achieve the Qatar National Vision 2030.
