Qatar Training Program
Jewel of the Middle East
If one is to describe Qatar in a sentence, the most apt description will be “it is fast evolving as the hottest destination of the Middle East”.
Its dazzling capital thrusts at the sky with the steel and glass of a 21st century megalopolis and the country is investing heavily in creating education, culture, and sports infrastructure to realize its ambition to make Doha stand first among equals – as A World Class City.
Yet Qatar is a beguiling blend of ultra-modern and old-world ways retaining its traditional feel where one can learn about the ancient art of falconry, watch camels race across the desert, admire traditional dhows bobbing on the water and explore lively traditional Souqs (marketplaces).
