We hold a positive outlook on the Qatari economy and the IT market as a whole despite the global oil slump that has lowered oil prices since 2014. IT market growth in Qatar will be maintained by large government programmes, modernisation efforts and public sector initiatives aimed at hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2022. This is all set against the backdrop of Qatar's high private consumption levels, which combines with the bright economic growth outlook to support our view of the market as a regional outperformer. Additionally, the ICT sector has been a key beneficiary of the government's drive to diversify the economy away from hydrocarbons, notably through its e-Government 2020 Strategy and strong support for the development of smart cities. This industry expects the government to remain committed to these goals, despite the sharp drop in oil prices in the second half of 2014. Indeed, lower oil prices further emphasise the importance of catalysing growth in other sectors, and the government can rely on large fiscal reserves to continue enhancing IT systems across government agencies and state-owned companies, at least over the next two to three years.
