In his speech at the ceremony, he stated that the KOC had achieved “many sporting victories at all levels” during his first term, which include medals from the Tokyo Olympic Games, Asian Games in China, Arab Games in Algeria, and the Islamic Games in Turkey.

Regulation reforms ensued; most important was the amendment of the statute to comply with the Olympic Charter, approving the code of ethics, adopting a unified bylaw to organize the work of the affiliated committees, developing the committee’s logo and identity, and signing cooperation agreements with many Olympic Committees around the world. While also paying due attention to women’s involvement in sports and their need for support, decisions were made by the KOC to approve and facilitate a health insurance policy for their treatment abroad at Qatar’s Aspire Academy to include other supportive matters. — KUNA
