The Doha 2030 Bid Committee pledged to organize an extraordinary and exceptional experience of a lifetime if Doha awarded the Asian Games in 2030.

Doha 2030 will draw from the city's wealth of history, culture and entertainment, to ensure that every Games participant is made to feel welcome in 2030 and that their needs are catered for.

The city's beautiful, family-friendly beach resorts and luxury spas will provide the perfect place to relax and unwind away from competition. On the other hand, Doha's multitude of world-class shopping malls offer visitors an array of high street and luxury brands as well as a range of recreational facilities; while those looking to experience the heritage of traditional Arab markets can visit Doha's spellbinding Souqs.

Doha also boasts a thriving arts and culture scene with countless museums, galleries and public art installations that showcase traditional and contemporary Qatari and Asian culture. This fusion of cultures and the old and new is a hallmark of Doha. It is reflected in the tradition of its harbours set against a backdrop of stunning modern skyscrapers and in the rich diversity of its restaurants and nightlife. From fine-dining to family-style, Doha's thousands of restaurants and cafes serve local and international cuisines that will cater for the tastes of the whole OCA family.

H.E. Doha 2030 Asian Games Bid Committee CEO and the secretary-general of Qatar Olympic Committee Jassim Al Buenain said that Doha has the experience and expertise to deliver Games services to the very highest standards. "We can guarantee world-class venues and training facilities, 5-star accommodation and a seamless modern transport network, all of which combine to ensure Asia's athletes will be the stars of our show."

"Doha also offers so much more. It is a city where different cultures live side by side in harmony and friendship; where tradition meets modernity and where nature meets human innovation. Doha 2030 would ensure that the special moments the OCA family enjoy in 2030 would go beyond competitions and would be part of the everyday experiences of living in our magical and inclusive city," HE added

In turn, H.E. Qatar National Tourism Council secretary-general and Qatar Airways Group chief executive Akbar Al Baker stated, "The Asian Games is about more than sport. It is an opportunity to bring Asia together in friendship and celebration of our cultural diversity. We have no doubt that Doha is the perfect city to do that because it already makes these kinds of connections every day. It is a melting pot of different cultures and nationalities and attracts millions of international visitors every year. Doha has something to offer everyone, whatever your age, background or interests. It is a city where everyone is welcome and where we all belong. And it is a city that is ready to provide the OCA family with the experience of a lifetime in 2030."

Earlier today, His Excellency Sheikh Joaan bin Hamad Al-Thani, chairman of Doha 2030 and president of the Qatar Olympic Committee, opened the Doha 2030 Majlis.
