Qatar is witnessing significant growth at all levels. To achieve Qatar National Vision 2030, our government is giving high priority to infrastructure development projects across the country, with an aim to lay the groundwork for growth and to further strengthen the country's position on the global economic map.
Since its establishment in 2004, the Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ has achieved outstanding achievements and successes, and had an effective role in supporting the economic and social development plans.
To support the continuation of these achievements, Ashghal pays special attention to the development and training of Qatari cadres, and the refinement of their expertise and skills to enable them to assume the highest positions, in addition to ensuring that the authority’s responsibilities are fully implemented. Those responsibilities include the design, implementation and management of the infrastructure projects and public buildings in Qatar.
Ashghal is implementing a wide range of infrastructure programmes in all parts of the country, including: the Expressway Programme, which comprises some of Qatar's largest highway projects, the Local Areas Infrastructure Programme, which aims to upgrade existing infrastructure and develop it in areas that lack infrastructure, and the Drainage projects implemented across the country. This is in addition to operation and maintenance works of drainage and road networks. The authority also works with the concerned ministries and entities to implement various public buildings projects, including health and educational facilities, as well as Awqaf and municipalities projects.
The Public Works Authority has adopted best practices in the field of development, implementation, and management of infrastructure, and has used a strong strategic model for outsourcing and partnering with leading global project management institutions to ensure that Qatar is among the most developed countries in the field of infrastructure worldwide.
One of our top priorities is to meet all our commitments to our customers as well as our highly experienced employees. We are keen to use interactive, constructive, and continuous dialogue with our customers. With the vision we have set, we look forward to Ashghal being a high performing authority that gives top priority to its customers, and develops and benefits from its experiences.
We in the Public Works Authority truly believe that "Qatar Deserves the Best". For us, this is not just a slogan; it is a conviction, a way of life, and a constant drive to achieve excellence and world-class quality.
Dr. Eng. Saad bin Ahmad Al Muhannadi
President of the Public Works Authority
