Speaking about areas of options for collaboration involving California organizations and QMIC, Abu-Dayya pointed that in terms of mobility globally there are particular traits that are popular all in excess of the earth in terms of clever mobility, integrated mobility, autonomous mobility, and shared mobility. When it comes to Qatar, there are two stages which includes ‘up to 2022’ (FIFA Earth Cup) which is the end of this 12 months in terms of collaboration, and enterprise alternatives further than 2022. 

“Going past 2022 there is likely to be a further major stage of enlargement and other prospects that will open and one of the regions is the enlargement of the infrastructure in the nation.
