Sheikh Abdulaziz stressed the importance of mobilizing and developing human energies to meet the requirements of Qatar National Vision 2030 in the field of media.

He said,“The importance of this meeting lies in the fact that it is a partnership between two institutions interested in developing the media profession in the State of Qatar, namely Qatar University and Qatar Media Corporation, where the university prepares future leaders and gives them the scientific tools to ensure their practice of the profession as required from a scientific point of view, and the institution then refines their experiences and talents and provides them with practical skills in order to respond to the needs of the Qatari labor market.”

For his part, Dr. Al Derham, expressed his hopes and aspirations for this meeting to be a turning point in the relationship between the Department of Media and the Qatar Media Corporation. He also pointed out that this event represents a practical translation of the university's strategic plan aimed at providing society with a graduate who meets the various developmental needs sought by the state.

He noted that the meeting comes as a gesture of cooperation between the university and Qatar Media Corporation, stressing in this field that those concerned with the media in Qatar meet to discuss the prospects of cooperation between graduates to draw lessons and motivate graduates and students to more effort in this important vital field because the media represents the soft power to promote heritage, preserve national security and present a distinguished image of Qatar, explaining the importance of organizing this dialogue, in which students listen to rich experiences and models in the field.
