(MENAFN – The Peninsula) The Minister of Culture and Sports H E Salah bin Ghanem Al Ali gave a presentation on the detailed plan for the strategy of the Ministry of Culture and Sports.
The presentation is based on the directives of Prime Minister and Minister of Interior H E Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz Al Thani on providing the Council of Ministers with plans related to the competencies of ministries and other government agencies, public bodies and institutions, including all implementation programmes and projects, the specified timetable for completion as well as standards and indicators for measuring performance progress in line with the comprehensive development vision, Qatar National Vision 2030.
Prime Minister and Minister of Interior H E Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz Al Thani chaired the regular meeting of Cabinet held at its seat at the Amiri Diwan yesterday.
Following the meeting, Minister of Justice and Acting Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs H E Dr. Issa bin Saad Al Jafali Al Nuaimi issued the statement.
H E the Prime Minister and the Minister of Interior stressed the need for the strategic plans of ministries and other government agencies, bodies and public institutions to include what Amir H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani affirmed in his speeches before the Shura Council that strategic plans are developed not only to complete a procedure in a formal manner, but to be applicable through clear implementation plans that include specific financial budgets for programmes and projects within a specific time frame and clear criteria for measuring the success of implementation and for accountability to be accordingly. The strategy of the Ministry of Culture and Sports included some main results and objectives. The main result is an active cultural, sports and youth movement based on an authentic value system that supports society in achieving civilised progress.
The Ministry will work through this strategy to create an active cultural, sport and youth movement that forms a framework for the society to uphold its national identity, value system and culture in light of its openness to the world and its constructive interaction with other cultures.
The first intermediate result is culture as a framework for preserving identity and promoting citizenship and civilised communication.
The Ministry will, within the framework of its strategy, activate the role of the cultural scene by promoting cultural production that aims to enhance major perceptions of national identity by developing attractive cultural activities that raise the level of societal participation culturally, work to discover and sponsor cultural talents, increase cultural production that enhances identity, and organise events that contribute to increasing cultural communication with resident communities. Work will also be undertaken to enhance Qatar’s cultural status regionally and internationally.
The executive framework for the ministry’s strategy consists of 35 goals that work to achieve one main result and four intermediate results.
The number of strategic objectives for the cultural enrichment and sports excellence sector, which the Ministry is working to achieve, is 21 goals, of which 13 goals will be achieved 100 percent by the Ministry, while the remaining goals will be achieved in cooperation with some partners in varying proportions.
The Cabinet approved the Cabinet draft decision amending some provisions of decision No. (14) of 2017, forming the organising committee to host international and regional sporting events, and the Ministry of Culture and Sports proposal to renew the term of membership of the committee for three years.
The committee, established at the Ministry of Culture and Sports, is specialised in several specialisations, including study of the proposals of sports authorities regarding hosting international or regional championships and sporting events and giving opinion regarding them in terms of the feasibility of holding these events and their benefit to the state; coordination measures with the concerned authorities regarding hosting tournaments and sporting events that have been approved; and study the estimated budget allocated to them by the State and give an opinion on it.
