Qatar 2020 - Trade & Investment

Qatar’s wealth of hydrocarbons puts it at the centre of global trade, with its liquefied natural gas feeding factories in China and powers stations in Japan, while its helium is used in everything from MRI scanners to aircraft parts. Qatar's rapid economic growth in the past two and a half decades should help the trade sector weather the challenges it faces in 2020. On the home front, investors are working to develop industrial segments that can draw on Qatar’s multiple economic strengths to make innovative products that can leverage its modern port and airport infrastructure to develop new overseas markets. This chapter contains interviews with Fahad Rashid Al Kaabi, CEO, Manateq; and Ali Al Waleed Al Thani, CEO, Investment Promotion Agency.
