New Doha Port to Widen Qatar’s Horizon

Over 15,000 workers are on site at the new Doha port project, which will ultimately transform Qatar’s

coastline and open up a world of opportunities for the Gulf state.

Spanning a total of 28.5km2, the QAR27 billion (USD7.4 billion) venture comprises three parts, namely Hamad Port, the country's new naval base and Qatar Economic Zone 3, covering an area equivalent to Doha itself.

Located 25km south of the capital, Hamad Port will already start welcoming vessels this month, while the first cruise ships are expected to call at the new location in October.

While the old port in the city centre undergoes a complete transformation, the currently developed new project is set to facilitate around 30 calls during its first season, including vessels hailed as the world's largest cruise ships, giving a major boost to Qatar's tourism industry.
