Doha, July 10 (QNA) - Occidental Petroleum of Qatar (Oxy Qatar) and Qatar Youth Hostels Association (QYH) have signed a sponsorship agreement to support youth tourism activities carried out by QYH through a number of initiatives and programs such as "Discover Qatar in 144 hours" and "Qatar Explorer Guide".
The sponsorship agreement was signed by CEO of Qatar Youth Hostels Association Ahmed Hassan Al Obaidli and President and General Manager of Oxy Qatar Andrew H. Kershaw, as part of the role of Oxy Qatar and QYH in community development through supporting the programs that are concerned with youth development and care, in order to encourage the youth to be an effective building block in society.
CEO of QYH Ahmed Hassan Al Obaidli expressed pleasure to partner with Occidental Petroleum of Qatar, stressing the keenness of QYH on providing initiatives that are qualitative and aligned with the objectives of the Qatari Youth Hostels Association movement in particular and the objectives of the Ministry of Culture and Sport in general and the Qatar National Vision 2030.
For his part, Andrew Kershaw stated that Occidental strives to be a Partner of Choice everywhere we operate by investing time and resources in programs that strengthen local communities. "As Qatar continues to grow in importance as an international destination, we are very pleased to form a new partnership with Qatar Youth Hostels Association. Discover Qatar in 144 hours and Qatar Explorer Guide provides a unique opportunity to highlight the country's cultural diversity to a world-wide audience," he said.
QYH recently launched a series of qualitative initiatives, including "Discover Qatar in 144 Hours". This is a tourist program directed towards youth groups from various youth hostels around the world to discover Qatar in 144 hours, to learn about the most important tourist, heritage and sports places and to explore Qatar.
The "Qatar Explorer Guide" initiative has been launched in several languages and will later be published as a luxury book to serve as a historical reference guide for Qatar travel enthusiasts. The guide addresses Arab youth in general as well as Qatari youth in particular, conveying experiences in tourism and travel and engaging in various adventures. It will also provide a vivid picture of Qatar to young explorers around the world. (QNA)
