HE Sheikh Abdullah worked for Qatar to achieve the highest standards of security and safety and reduce rates of major crimes, which made Qatar one of the safest countries in the world according to international reports and indicators.
In facilitating services for citizens and residents, the ministry has adopted the e-government strategy and the former prime minister supervised its implementation, which has enabled everyone to obtain government services via mobile phone through the services of Metrash.
HE Sheikh Abdullah also supervised the government linking plans between ministries and institutions.
In the field of food security, the National Food Security Strategy was launched. The strategy is based on four axes, namely international trade, the local market, local production and strategic storage.
