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

Qatar will seek to mend the rift with its Gulf Co-operation Council neighbours (and possibly Egypt) by withdrawing some of its financial and political support for Islamist movements in the region. International criticism of the country's human rights record will continue until the government introduces reforms to the controversial foreign workers sponsorship program (kafala). If proven, allegations that Qatar's bid for the 2022 football World Cup was corrupt could shake investors' confidence in the extent to which investment deals between the government and private contractors are conducted transparently.

Capital expenditure will pick up considerably, relative to recurrent spending, in the latter half of the forecast period, as the government is expected to invest QR664bn (US$182.3bn) over the next five years in projects related to the 2022 football World Cup and the National Vision 2030 development plan.
