His Excellency Sheikh Abdulaziz bin Thani Al Thani, CEO of Qatar Media Corporation, started the press conference by saying: “For 12 years, the State of Qatar has been working hard to prepare the country in all fields for this moment in which the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 begins, as Qatar took it upon itself to be to all Arabs and to represent them in the best way,” stressing that the responsibility of the Qatar Media Corporation was to follow up on the readiness of all state institutions and agencies to organize the World Cup.
