The National Tourism Council is to be constituted under the chairmanship of HE the Prime Minister, the draft law stipulates. The council will be interested to “achieve the best conditions for the implementation of the national strategy for tourism and its subsidiary programmes, in order to promote comprehensive development plans for the tourism sector and organise and promote them internally and externally”, QNA defined, highlighting that the council will target to “improve the tourism experience in the country and show the civilisational, cultural, artistic and touristic features of the State”.


The National Tourism Council under the draft law will exercise all essential powers and terms of reference to attain its purpose that comprise the “adoption and review of the national strategy for tourism, preparation for and follow-up on the implementation of the projects and programmes that are part of the strategy, as well as the approval of the State’s development, economic and infrastructure plans and programmes that are related to the strategy and following up on its implementation in accordance with Qatar National Vision 2030”.
