Qatar's central bank began issuing its fifth set of banknotes on the 18th, including the main stadium of the 2022 World Cup undertaken by Chinese enterprises in the pattern printed on the banknote with the denomination of 10 QAR (1 US dollar about 3.64 QAR). This is the first time Qatar has been built on Chinese currency.
According to Qatari central bank official Muhammad kuwari, the new currency will be issued in stages. Until March 19, 2021, Qatar allowed the old currency to continue to circulate; thereafter, the old currency was banned from circulation, but the holder could exchange the new currency equivalent with the Central Bank of Qatar within 10 years. Compared with the old currency, the new currency is more beautiful and more anti-counterfeiting. In November 2016, China Railway Construction International Group Co., Ltd. (CRCC) won the bid for the 2022 Qatar world cup main stadium construction project, with a total contract amount of QAR 2.8 billion. Located 15 kilometers north of Doha, the capital of Qatar, the stadium can accommodate 92000 spectators and will undertake important activities and events such as the opening ceremony, closing ceremony and final of the 2022 World Cup.
