Qatar is witnessing “remarkable development towards building a fast-growing and accelerated economy”, UK secretary of state for transport and MP Chris Grayling has said. The country is implementing an “ambitious development program that has transformed Doha into a workshop for a variety of projects that will make it a strong economic center in the region and the world”, he said in an interview with the official Qatar News Agency. On the ongoing siege, Grayling said while it has been a challenging time for Qatar, he is impressed with what he has seen in the country as the economy continues to grow, while also stressing that the UK wants to see a quick resolution to the dispute. Grayling said he held constructive meetings with Qatari officials during his visit to Doha and expressed the willingness of the UK to work closely with Qatar in the implementation of major projects in the state, such as the expansion of Hamad International Airport and other infrastructure projects. Such projects, he noted, represented a real opportunity to deepening bilateral ties.
