The Shura Council (Advisory Council) held its regular weekly session yesterday under the chairmanship of HE Mr. Ahmed bin Abdullah bin Zaid Al Mahmoud, Chairman of the Council.

At the beginning of the session, the Council discussed Decree-Law No. (16) of 2020 amending some provisions of Decree-Law No. 11 of 2012 on the governmental regulation for the sale and purchase of chemical and petrochemical products that are produced in the State of Qatar.
