Qatar has created a farmers’ association, backed by the Ministry of Economy and the Qatar Chamber of Commerce and Industry (QCCI), to promote agricultural development in the country.

The association will offer farming loans, and also an emergency fund to farmers, The Peninsula reported. Applications to join the association as a founding member will be open to Qatari farmers from 15 to 26 June.

“[QCCI chairman Sheikh Khalifa bin Jassim Al-Thani] pointed to a significant decline in cultivated areas in the country, an indicator that, he said, requires concerned sides to discuss the problems facing farm owners and develop strategic plans for the organisation of cultivated areas,​” said a statement from the Qatar News Agency.
