Business environment in Qatar

Qatar is a wealthy country with vast natural gas reserves. It boasts one of the highest per capita incomes, lowest unemployment levels and benefits from one of the lowest fiscal break-even oil prices across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region. Like other Middle Eastern countries, Qatar is looking to diversify its economy by increasing private and foreign investment in non-energy sectors. The government is looking to spend close to $10 billion on infrastructure, roads and event facilities and increase the country’s power capacity.
