Qatar’s economy is considered to be highly reliable for foreign investments and businesses due to its abundance in terms of natural wealth, and its clear openness for attracting foreign investment. Foreign investment has played a key role in the construction boom. The country also has comprehensive and ambitious economic development and infrastructure programmes.

Several measures such as efficiency enhancement in public spending, the financial sector growth and higher contribution of the private sector would help stimulate high growth. Inflation is kept under control through constant co-ordination between the financial and monetary policies to provide more support for the business environment and investments in the country.

Qatar’s economy is poised to record a 3.1% real GDP (at constant prices) growth in 2018, supported by the increasing gas production and sustained spending on the FIFA World Cup 2022. Moreover, the retrieval of the global crude oil prices will also have a positive effect on the hydrocarbon and non-carbon GDP of the economy.
