INTRODUCTION

Qatar image here

Throughout the world countries and regions need to source ways to counter dependence on traditional revenue sources. Primary products in particular are subject to fluctuations in supply and demand and alternatives are needed to avoid major reductions in spending plans and fiscal consolidation which can lead to a significant loss in foreign assets. These can take the form of special Zones, Parks or other Centres.

DOHA, QATAR

Doha is a rapidly developing city, strategically placed facing East across the Persian Gulf between the UAE and Bahrain, that is now Qatar ’s thriving economic centre.  However it is still deeply connected to its Arab-Islamic heritage and culture. The headquarters of the country’s major petroleum producing companies are located in Doha.

The city’s economy is largely built on revenues from this sector. Yet the government is currently investing in other branches in order to move away from the nation’s dependence on oil and gas. Many employees are now busy with new real-estate or construction projects including those for the 2022 World Cup.  Other projects of interest to international investors are designed to offer all kinds of luxuries to visitors and residents alike, with sophisticated shops, hotels and restaurants.
