The Ministry of Culture and Sports

The Ministry of Culture and Sports

What is the role of the Ministry of Culture and Sports? This government body is responsible for preserving the arts and heritage of the Islamic culture as well as the national characteristics of the State for research and non-research purposes. The Ministry aims to promote national events and celebrations by organizing various programs related to sports and culture, along with regulating the licenses that are needed to own and establish television, audiovisual, and radio stations. This body of authority is also in charge of monitoring the publications, broadcast materials, and the press, which includes issuing the necessary licenses needed for legal operation.

The Ministry is also highly involved in fostering the healthy development of the skills of the youth by making sure that the calibre of sports expertise and performance is at the highest level of excellence. In line with this, the Ministry sets certain conditions and standard when clubs, committees, youth associations, and centers are established. With these regulations, the youth are therefore ensured guaranteed involvement in courses, competitions, conferences, festivals, camps, and trips both locally and internationally to further develop their skills and to enhance their potential.

In accordance to an Emiri Decree No. 16 of 2014, the Ministry of Youth and Sports was established in order to help promote the skills of the youth. The development of their skills contributes to giving the level of sports in the country a significant boost, all in keeping with maintaining the standards of excellence of every new generation when it comes to the different fields of sports.

Just recently, the Minister of Culture and Sports H E Salah bin Ghanem Al Ali emphasized the importance of promoting the values of noble sportsmanship especially since Doha is the host of the Inter-regional Sports Integrity Summit as organised by the International Centre for Sport Security (ICSS) and Qatar Airways, in cooperation with the Sport Integrity Global Alliance (SIGA). The Ministry of Culture and Sports is also actively involved in fighting corruption and promoting the values and principles of integrity in all regional and global sports.

This is especially significant now as the 2022 FIFA World Cup emblem is unveiled, symbolizing the success that the country has achieved regarding the Qatari cultural identity. The Qatar 2022 World Cup is a wonderful avenue for the State to showcase Qatari values and cultural diversity as well.

It helps to have a trusted business consultancy partner to help facilitate all of these requirements and to provide you with reliable liaisons with the Ministry of Culture and Sports.
