Qatar – A Small But Prospering State

Qatar is a peninsula in the Middle East that shares its southern border together with Saudi Arabia. With 11,586 square kilometers Qatar has half the size of the German state Hessen. Qatar's 2,4 Mio. inhabitants consist of 18% Qataris, 36% people from South Asia, 32% Arabs and 14% Western expats. Besides Arabic, English is the most important business language. Qatar has been an independent state since 1971. Since June 25, 2013 the monarchy is headed by HH the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani.

Qatar's Economy

Economically Qatar enjoys great prosperity, it is the world largest LNG exporter and has one of the world's highest per capita income. Since "Made in German" is well known and appreciated in the highly competitive Qatari market, German companies and institutions aim to build strategic partnerships in the field of economics and culture with Qatar accordingly.

Potential sectors for German companies are conventional and renewable energies, engineering, infrastructure, plant engineering, machinery, medical technology and more.
