Which the big construction companies in Qatar
Qatar as a business location
From an economic point of view, Qatar is very prosperous. The country is the world's largest LNG exporter and has one of the highest per capita incomes in the world. German companies and institutions are rightly positioning themselves as potential partners in Qatar, both on an economic and cultural level. “Made in Germany” enjoys a high priority in this highly competitive market. Business opportunities for German companies are primarily in the sectors of conventional and renewable energies, engineering services, infrastructure, plant construction, machinery, medical technology and the food industry.
General political and economic overview
Qatar has been ruled by the Al-Thani family since the 19th century. After the First World War, the country became a protectorate of Great Britain and gained independence in 1971. In 1995, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani took power in a bloodless coup from his father Sheikh Khalifa bin Hamad Al-Thani, who was the country's emir until 2013 and is now considered the father of the modern state of Qatar. Under his leadership, the country experienced rapid economic development. On June 25, 2013, “Father Emir” Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa handed over power to his then 33-year-old son Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani in an unconventional televised address for the region. Qatar is a member of various international organizations, above all the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), which aims to strengthen cooperation between its six member states (United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait) through transnational regulations. Qatar is also a member of OPEC and OAPEC (Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries), the WTO, WHO and the UN, the IMF and the World Bank. The economy, like that of the other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, depends to a large extent on revenues from gas and oil exports and public investment. Despite a sharp drop in energy prices, the country continues to record solid growth rates. In the long term, however, the emirate wants to diversify and is trying to establish itself as a service center. Other sectors, such as retail and hospitality, and financial services and insurance, are gaining in importance. Large public infrastructure projects will continue to drive the economy in the years to come. Priority will be given to the sports stadiums for the FIFA World Cup and the necessary transport infrastructure (metro and roads).
