A fact widely acknowledged among the international Arab and Islamic community is the emphatic emergence of Qatar as a setter of trends in both external and internal affairs. Confident in the people's strong roots in their Islamic values and traditions, the nation's leadership has struck out to transform the country into statehood compliant with the expectations offered by 21st century technology in a climate of political stability, peace, and prosperity.

Qatar's opportunities of wealth and influence have spontaneously thrown up the indigenous talents to exploit those very opportunities. The country today is a picture of buoyancy and promise, at all levels of society and in all fields of activity--creatively, and in industry and commerce, in education and health care, in state-of-the-art production of its hydro-carbon resources both onshore and offshore, in banking and finance, in international communications, and in political thinking. All eyes today are on Qatar in its own region of the world above all the eyes of the young.

This book tells something of the story.
