Qatar will remain stable in 2014-18 under the rule of the new emir. Vocal opposition to the government will remain minimal as Qataris continue to benefit from the country's huge hydrocarbons wealth.

The new emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, will maintain a proactive foreign policy, similar to that of his father. Qatar will continue to call for the removal of the Syrian President, Bashar al‑Assad, and play a prominent role as a financial backer of Islamist opposition fighters in the Syrian conflict. Its foreign policy will remain independent from that of the other Gulf Co-operation Council countries, although it will continue to improve relations with Iran. Ties with Egypt are set to remain tense.

Capital expenditure will pick up considerably, relative to recurrent spending, in the latter half of the forecast period as the government invests heavily in infrastructure projects, as part of the 2030 National Development Plan and in preparation for the 2022 football World Cup.
