“This annual forum is the first of its kind to build effective communication channels between the ministry’s leaders to discuss their ambitions to enhance institutional effectiveness, exchange ideas and opinions to improve the satisfaction of the internal and external public,” he said.
He added, “In conformity with the directives of Prime Minister and Minister of Interior HE Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz Al Thani in keeping pace with Qatar National Vision 2030, it was necessary to develop the strategic plan of the Ministry of Municipality and Environment.”
He said, the Ministry, with the help of experts and specialists from various sectors, has begun to develop its strategic plan in cooperation with one of the international consultancy firms specialised in the field of formulating strategic plans.
Excellence in performance is the way to achieve goals and to achieve this, the Qatari cadres must be built through education, qualification, training and refining of their skills, in addition to hiring Qataris for jobs with national competencies, as this is one of the major priorities at the ministry, he said.
