Qatar 2020 - Economy

The Qatari government has created a clear roadmap with Qatar National Vision 2030, which focuses on economic diversification and growth with a retention of the country’s key cultural values at its heart. Although much of the focus in recent times has been on infrastructure preparations for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, it is the period following the tournament, when new liquefied natural gas and petrochemicals cargo starts to be shipped, that will have a more significant lasting impact on Qatar’s broader development. This chapter contains interviews with Ali bin Ahmed Al Kuwari, Minister of Commerce and Industry; Sheikh Khalifa bin Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani, Chairman, Qatar Chamber; Ahmad Al Sayed, Minister of State; and Chairman, Qatar Free Zones Authority; and Abdulaziz bin Nasser Al Khalifa, CEO, Qatar Development Bank.
