Qatar Industry 2014
Building on Qatar’s comparative advantages, the government has focused on developing industrial sectors that support or leverage its energy resources and industry. Developing downstream facilities that add value to energy by-products, for example, has helped build a portfolio of petrochemicals, chemicals and fertiliser companies. Other investments include developing energy-intensive industries in steel and aluminium that can benefit from Qatar’s low-cost gas supplies. Shipbuilding is another growing segment that contributes to industrial output and supports the energy sector. While global economic conditions may present some challenges, local and regional demand is likely to remain strong, ensuring a positive outlook for Qatar’s growing industrial base. This chapter contains interviews with Abdulrahman Ahmad Al Shaibi, Chief Coordinator, Industries Qatar; and Abdulrahman Ali Al Abdulla, CEO, Muntajat.
