Qatar’s Public Works Authority president has confirmed that the nation is working in full swing in order to complete all the infrastructure work ahead of the World Cup 2022 in the next two years. Qatar will be hosting the prestigious tournament for the first time in their history and the cash rich nation are not prepared to waste any time in order to be at their best. The last few editions of the World Cup have been met with increasing delays due to a variety of reasons, but it has mostly been financial related. Qatar may not have any such issues with the nation flush with oil money so much so that they are ready to invest in excess of $6.5 billion just in terms of the Stadium.
“I am proud to say that 90% of the highways that will serve the stadiums for the FIFA World Cup in 2022 have been completed. The stadiums will be served by certain highways and most of the construction work for these facilities has been done. Despite the economic blockade, Ashghal, through its engineers and top management, and especially the support provided by the government, was able to deliver its projects on schedule and had overcome the challenges of the blockade,” said Yousef al-Emadi.
