I'd also like to thank you for your unwavering dedication to your work. It's this spirit that has already enabled us to achieve so much across our projects. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed and progress made on the project is a testament to that.” As well as extending his thanks to Qatar Rail's workforce, Al Subaie later went on to say that this annual tradition provides an opportunity for the entire company to come together and take stock of its achievements.

Saad Al Muhannadi stated: “I would like to express my deep gratitude to our workers, whose dedication and exceptional performance is an example to follow. I am certain that without their hard work and efforts we would not be able to accomplish our milestones. Join me in extending the blessings of Ramadan to each and every one of them. By the grace of God and by virtue of your dedication and expertise, I have great confidence in a bright future for our company and our ability to provide the people of Qatar with the exceptional Railway project and change their lives to the better.”
