Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, who has ruled since 1995, convened relatives and advisers in the Qatari capital, Doha, on Monday to reveal plans for his departure.

An ode to a glorious reign

The Emir’s tenure has been one marked with many significant achievements for the State of Qatar. A reign that has propelled the state to the status of the World’s Richest Country and a major player in World affairs.

Qatar has played a major role in the Syrian conflict and aiding humanitarian efforts across the World. Under the leadership of Sheikh Hamad, the city has transformed itself from a barren land on the tip of the Gulf Peninsula to one of the World’s most beautiful tourist destinations, with robust domestic development framework and an upbeat financial outlook.

Qatari organizations such as QIA and QF have been the global pioneers in Investment and Charity adding another feather to the hat of the Emir of the World’s most prosperous state.

Since being chosen as the venue for the 2022 World Cup, Qatar has redoubled its growth efforts, transforming the nation into an infrastructural utopia and the Emir’s decision to let the next generation wield the reigns of power is one that would be echoed with appreciation across the planet.

What the future holds for Qatar

His Excellency Sheikh Tamim was educated at Harrow and Sherborne school where he received his A levels in 1997. Following this he attended the Harrow School in Middlesex and then graduated in 1998 from the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.

Though only 33 years of age, the young Sheikh has a proven track record of effective administration in all the positions of responsibility that has been thrust unto him thus far and Qataris are in no doubt that he is the right individual to continue in the Emir footsteps and lead Qatar into a new era of development and dominance in World Affairs.

His charming personality and strong leadership is expected to further Qatar’s global position and diplomatic influence.

The World’s biggest exporter of liquefied natural gas has already played a dominant role in the liberation of Libya and is continuing its efforts on the Syrian front.

While some political analysts speculate that the news would unsettle the governments in the region already shaken by the Arab Spring and not used to orderly transfer of power, none are in doubt that Qatar and Qataris are the ultimate gainers through the Emir’s revolutionary move that is certain to bring a positive influence to the people in the Gulf.
