Qatar prioritizing health, education, transport projects

Qatar is proceeding with planned economic development projects despite cheaper oil and is prioritizing those related to health, education and transport, finance minister Ali Sherif al-Emadi said on Sunday.

“Despite the drop in oil prices, we are still going ahead with our planned projects,” Emadi said in a speech.

“We will give priority to projects related to health, education, infrastructure, transportation including rail, and projects related to the 2022 World Cup,” he said. Qatar will host the global soccer tournament.

A financial system law issued by the emir earlier this month gives the finance ministry more authority to prioritize development projects and enlist the aid of other government councils and ministries, in an apparent effort to reduce red tape and waste, and avoid corruption.
