The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MOTC) inaugurated yesterday dredging works in Doha Port as efforts continue to develop all ports countrywide and preserve their infrastructure. The ministry aims to boost Doha Port's capacity to be able to accommodate the largest cruise ships in the future, helping to position the capital city among world's top cruise ship tourism destinations.
Dredging deeper in the Doha Port's watercourse will qualify it to become a tourist destination that is able to accommodate giant cruise ships. These development works will generate significant economic returns to companies, hotels, restaurants, retailing and service sectors as well as the tourist landmarks of Qatar, Sheikh Mohamed bin Khalid Al Thani, Director of Technical Affairs at MOTC, said.
