Qatar Population Day aims at revealing the latest and most important accomplishments of the population policy, determining the difficulties and challenges, and raising awareness of population issues.
Meanwhile, those who followed the motto of ‘Towards ensuring a decent life for the people of Qatar’ will be honoured at the event.
The function will feature a session to review and evaluate Singapore’s experience in implementing its population policy, and to discuss and learn from its experience.
