The championship, which will conclude on Wednesday, is being organised by QatarDebate Center under the patronage of HH Sheikha Hind bint Hamad al Thani, vice-chairperson and CEO of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development.

In this year's championship, 54 teams are taking part from Arab and non-Arab countries.

The third day of the championship on Tuesday kicked off with the announcement of the qualifying teams for the quarterfinals and the semifinals.

Among the highlights of the third day was a press conference held with debaters of the US team who expressed their joy in visiting Qatar, pointing out their admiration of Qatari heritage and landmarks such as Souq Waqif. The qualifying teams praised the world-class organisation of the event, describing it as the world's largest and most competitive championship with teams from 50 Arab and non-Arab countries competing for the title.

During the championship, training workshops were organised by QatarDebate Center and the World Organization for the Renaissance of Arabic language for non-Arabic-speaking countries. The workshops were part of the implementation of the memorandum of understanding between the World Organization for the Renaissance of Arabic Language and QatarDebates Center.
