MOTC Holds Meeting on Hydrographic Surveying

Doha-

The Ministry has organized a coordination meeting with specialists from the U.S. Navy Hydrographic Office to discuss preparations for hydrographic surveying on some Qatari waters.

Chaired by MOTC’s Assistant Undersecretary of Maritime Transport Affairs, Dr. Saleh bin Fetais Al Marri, the meeting discussed the importance of conducting the survey on previously-specified zones with the aim of ensuring the safety of maritime navigation as well as lives and properties during sea traffic.

At the meeting, it has been agreed to train Qatari specialists in hydrographic surveying during the activity, which is expected to begin this February.

The meeting comes as MOTC continues to provide the necessary support to all relevant State entities with regards to enhancing maritime safety.
