GCC railway project could link Qatar, Turkiye

Basar Arıoglu, member of the Foreign Economic Relations Board of Turkiye (DEIK) and President of the Turkiye-Qatar Business Council, has stated that the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) railway link project would link Qatar with Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Iraq and could reach Turkiye. This project is expected to connect Doha with Europe, the Middle East and China.

Arıoğlu said to a group of Qatari journalists during a trip organised by the Turkish Embassy in Doha that the Turkiye-Gulf railway link project is being discussed and would link Turkey and Iraq and possibly Kuwait.

Arıoğl noted that work is in progress to come up with plans for the expansion and extension of the Doha Metro Network, which he has referred to as “a qualitative project that has become a milestone in the field of infrastructure in the region.”

He acknowledge Qatar’s role as a pacesetter as far as setting the necessary standards for infratructure projects and a fitting budget for the metro project.

Gulf-Turkish relations have experienced notable development in recent times, especially since amiable relations between Ankara, Riyadh and Abu Dhabi, following years of tension.
