2022 World Cup helping transform the region: Thawadi

Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy Secretary-General Hassan al Thawadi has said the 2022 FIFA World Cup is helping to transform the region and accelerate Qatar National Vision 2030.

Speaking at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum, Thawadi said, “Qatar has always understood the potential impact of the World Cup and how it can accelerate our national vision and transform our country for future generations.”

“The World Cup is already helping Qatar develop new industries, attract new talent and investment into the country, and accelerate legislative change in critical areas, such as labour reform. It’s also helping promote football and a healthier lifestyle in Qatar. We’re still three years away from kick-off but we are already seeing the positive impact the tournament is having on the country’s development,” he said.


Explaining Qatar National Vision 2030, Thawadi said it had succeeded in diversifying the country’s economy, and was using the FIFA World Cup to further accelerate its mission. “Qatar’s astute financial planning and diversification away from a wholly hydrocarbon-based economy into new industries, such as Islamic finance, medicine, education and sport, has helped the country’s economy thrive over the last two decades to become one of the region’s strongest,” he added.
