Qatar's National Vision for 2030

The incredible energy and ambition of this little country, Qatar, continues to unfold in amazing ways. Last week the Qatar National Vision for 2030 emerged as a way to put the issues of development on the table and to call all Qatari and ex-patriot citizens in Qatar to the work of building a future. The Vision is well worth reading. I think you will see that it conveys a vision that many developing countries pronounce and that Qatar is deeply committed to achieving.

This is fascinating. I'm struck by how well-written and accessible this piece is. I'm guessing it represents the result of a highly effective strategic planning process - which as we all know needs to be followed up with constant assessment and monitoring to understand progress toward those goals. My recent visit, brief as though it was, causes me to believe that all these goals are achievable in Qatar.

Reminds me of Bahrain 2030 Vision. See the official site of Bahrain Economic Development Board:

I was invited in October to this event in Berlin Adlon Hotel -Bahrain Economic Forum - by German Near and Middle East Association NUMOV.

"On the occasion of the visit to Germany of His Majesty King Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa of the Kingdom of Bahrain, the “Economic Forum BAHRAIN” will take place on October 28, 2008 at the Adlon Hotel in Berlin.

The Kingdom of Bahrain, a gateway to the Gulf, has one of the fastest growing economies in the Arab world as well as a highly liberalised market. Diversification ranks high on the national agenda, and all
business sectors are included in the country's broad economic portfolio.

The “Economic Forum BAHRAIN”, which will be opened by H.E. Dr. Hassan Bin Abdalla Fakhroo, Minister of Industry and Commerce of the Kingdom of Bahrain, will provide an excellent opportunity to get first-hand information about opportunities in business, cooperation and investment between the Kingdom of Bahrain and Germany."

Its great to see GCC Region developing in toto and with so potent epicenters.
