The Fourth Estate - Journalism in Qatar
Welcome, members of the Fourth Estate* in Qatar. Many things may be best left unsaid, but it doesnt stop one from discussing it aloud in QL.
All I say, is welcome aboard!
(*this means journalists!)
Assalamu Alaikkum Warahmathullahi Wabarakathuhu...
QATAR MUSLIM ISLAHI CENTRE, Under the supervision of Fanar will conduct an 'Eid Gah' at Fareej Bin Nasser behind family food centre, Doha -Qatar.
A port costing US$5.5 billion is to be built on reclaimed land in Mesaieed, Qatar.
The project, located south of Al Wakra, will help bring down escalating import costs and remove any handling and storage problems — the existing ports of Ras Laffan and Mesaieed are both struggling to keep up with an influx of container traffic and are impeded by slow Customs processes and crane shortages.
Ras Laffan port will triple in capacity in the next few years in anticipation of the predicted dramatic increases in hydrocarbon cargo.
For the next commercial era Qatar needs the new port, which will function as a free trade zone and share land with Doha International Airport, which itself is in the throes of a $4.1 billion expansion.
So this is it, officially the first post of the season in this group. Thanks, Qatari and Serendipity, for joining. I am gingerly going over the ropes at getting better at it. At the moment, i truly suck.
Lets see if we can get this moving. All ideas are welcome. Lets make this a fun place, whew!
