The new Boeing hub will focus on strengthening the local aerospace sector through research and technology advancements, fostering innovation and support for startups, as well as driving and developing sustainable aviation.

Additionally, the hub will build a local skilled workforce that can contribute to the sector’s long-term success. Boeing’s new entity will complement the work carried out through its existing Qatar branch companies, Boeing Qatar and Boeing International Corporation.
