In what ways has Qatar evolved into a stronger economy following the blockade?

Muted growth figures did not detract from a generally positive year for Qatar, in which new developments in liquefied natural gas (LNG) production were matched by broad-based expansion in non-hydrocarbons sectors.

It has been two years since three Gulf countries and Egypt placed an economic blockade on Qatar, to which Qatar responded by implementing a series of reforms, seeking out new trade partners and amplifying economic diversification efforts. How effective have these measures proved?

Mirroring a trend seen across the Gulf, two lenders in Qatar announced the country’s first bank merger in a move officials say will support economic growth and the development of the financial and private sectors. 

A series of initiatives designed to promote entrepreneurship and incubate start-ups in Qatar are strengthening the country’s research, development and innovation (RDI) ecosystem.
