Qatari capital markets continue to play a major role in the national economy despite a gradual slowdown brought about by the slowing pace of infrastructure investment in the run-up to the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Nonetheless, the Qatar Stock Exchange enjoyed a strong year in 2019, following on from the previous year, in which it was the best-performing market in the GCC, with returns of around 20%.

This chapter contains an interview with Rashid bin Ali Al Mansoori, CEO, Qatar Stock Exchange.
