Cabinet Acknowledges Role of QNRF in Strengthening Qatar's Food Security

Prime Minister and Minister of Interior H E Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz Al-Thani chaired the Cabinet's regular meeting held at its seat at the Amiri Diwan on Wednesday.

The Cabinet expressed great satisfaction that the State of Qatar ranked first among Arab countries and 24th globally in the 2021 Global Food Security Index (GFSI), in a list that included 113 countries.

The Cabinet affirmed that this important achievement was accomplished thanks to the directives of HH the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani and the special interest that HH the Amir attaches to food security projects, as it confirms the success of the State's plans in this vital field and its strategy to increase agricultural production to reach self-sufficiency in accordance with Qatar National Vision 2030.

Within the framework of this strategy, the State has made a major development of food markets and agricultural yards, expanded and modernized the logistical infrastructure in ports and warehouses, and established strategic storage reserves of wheat and rice, increasing the reserve stocks of a wide range of basic foodstuffs in retail stores, while increasing public expenditures on agricultural research through the Qatar National Research Fund for food security, in addition to the continuous efforts to modernize food security policies and strategies in the country.
