Qatar’s Souq Haraj to open on new site near Hamad airport by mid-2017

Qatar’s popular second-hand market Souq Haraj will open in a new location near Hamad International Airport by summer 2017, government officials have announced.

The Qatar firm Triple A Trading and Contracting has been awarded a QR206 million contract to develop and manage the market, which will lease out space to small and medium-sized businesses at “affordable” rates of QR3,500 per month, according to a statement issued in Arabic by the Ministry of Economy and Commerce (MEC).

The new market will be on a 35,000 square meter site described in the statement as being in Umm Bashar, near the airport. In a previous MEC announcement, a map shows the location on the west side of Barwa Village, which is off Al Wakrah Road, roughly 2km south of F-Ring Road.

It will replace the existing Souq Haraj in Najma.
