Initiative description: Build local expertise to deliver the FIFA World Cup 2022™ and foster the development of the sports and events industries in Qatar and the region

Hosting the FIFA World Cup 2022™ presents opportunities to foster innovation and capabilities needed to develop sectors such as the sports and events industries, in the host country and the wider region. Through the development of local expertise and the attraction and retention of skilled expatriates, the tournament will make a key contribution to the Qatar National Vision (QNV) 2030, thereby supporting Qatar’s desired transition to a more diversified, knowledge-based economy.

Under the National Development Strategy (NDS) 2018-2022, Qatar seeks to promote the sports and culture sectors to support the economic diversification objectives of the country. Qatar also aims to increase the number of Qataris in technical and managerial roles working in the sports sector by at least 5% annually from 2016 to 2022.
