Holding the one of the largest oil and gas reserves in the world Qatar has quickly transformed itself into a developed economy and has left the other Middle East behind. But the drawback of this single source economic development has meant that Qatars revenue (around 83%) is totally dependent on the international prices of oil and gas.
Taking this into consideration the government has pushed for heavy investment in several key sectors where it has been totally reliant on exports. Qatar is one of the few MENA countries which has shown an active interest in promoting the growth of investment.
Certain sectors in Qatari economy need massive investment to reduce the reliance of hydro-carbon based revenues. Sectors like Agriculture, Healthcare cosmetics and fitness, Water, Manufacturing , Chemicals and ICT presents a host of investment opportunities ready for the taking.
