Qatar’s Cabinet has approved the establishment of a free media zone aimed at attracting international media, technology companies and research institutions. The aim will also be to integrate activities with other state projects and support the establishment of investment funds focusing on media organisations. Media which will be supported will include digital, film and television. The Director of the Government Communications Office said the decision will allow foreign journalists to register in the zone. It follows the Cabinet’s recent approval of a draft law on freedom of the press.
