HE the Chairman of Qatar's Administrative Control and Transparency Authority Abdullah bin Hamad Al Attiyah described the address of HH the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani at the opening meeting of the 43rd ordinary session of the Advisory Council as comprehensive saying it outlined a new road map for Qatar's economy.
In a statement to Qatar News Agency (QNA ) Al Attiyah said that the speech of HH the Emir pointed to the Qatari investments in the energy sector which reached its peak.
In this context, he noted that now we must focus on other very important sectors such as trade, real estate, money market and tourism and this is a complementary stage for mapping out an ongoing economic stage.
HE Al-Attiyah asserted that it was clear that the State of Qatar has dealt away from the oil shocks and oil price saying in this regard that that the oil price is volatile and fluctuating like other metals, where we see oil prices falling sharply or rising strongly.
Al-Attiyah went on to say in his speech HH the Emir touched the Arab developments and he diagnosed the current Arab situation.
Furthermore, he added that HH the Emir spoke about events that are taking place in many countries such as Libya, Yemen, Syria and Iraq calling on the international community to take action especially on the Palestinian issue and the grave Israeli settlement expansion in Jerusalem and the Palestinian territories a matter which threatens the peace process and the establishment of a Palestinian State.
He said the Syrian people are being subjected to the biggest catastrophe a people can go through and displacement process which is the largest one of its kind in history.
He stressed that the international community must intervene to put an end to these massacres carried out by the Syrian regime against its people.
