New Port Project
On 19 June 2007 His Highness Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani, Emir of the State of Qatar, issued Emiri Decree No. 37, setting forth the creation of one of the world's largest greenfield port developments. Strategically located south of Doha, the QAR 27 Billion (USD 7.4 Billion) megaproject, which includes a new port, a new base for the Qatar Emiri Naval Forces and the Qatar Economic Zone 3, will span a 26.5 square kilometer area.
The New Port Project is the feature of a documentary produced by Al Rayyan TV channel as part of their factual series ‘Future Qatar’, which focuses on the most ambitious civil construction projects supporting the Qatar National Vision 2030. The documentary was aired on 30 April 2014.
In collaboration with Al Jazeera Documentary Channel the New Port Project is producing a documentary that will provide a behind the scenes look at the New Port megaproject by introducing many of the individuals diligently working to responsibly transform 26.5 square kilometers of sand into one of the world's largest Greenfield port developments.
