2022 FIFA World Cup is key supporter of Qatar National Vision 2030 goals: Hassan Al Thawadi
NEW YORK: The Secretary-General of the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC) Hassan Al Thawadi said that the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 represents an exceptional event which embodies the objectives of Qatar’s National Vision 2030.
Al Thawadi said that Qatar views the World Cup as a comprehensive event that goes beyond the boundaries of stadiums, stemming from its belief in the power of sport to make a positive change in societies, especially in football; noting that the World Cup has also been the main supporter of many initiatives and a catalyst for social and economic development alike.
The SC Secretary-General cited the “Scoring for the Goals” event for sustainable development as an example.
“Qatar launched the initiative at the United Nations headquarters recently within the framework of its preparations to host a sustainable edition of the World Cup, and in continuation of its sustainable approach, especially as the initiative includes the seventeen UN Sustainable Development Goals,” he said.
