Situated on a peninsula that protrudes into the Arabian Gulf, the State of Qatar is an autonomous and self-governing nation in the Middle East. Since gaining full independence from Britain in 1971, Qatar has been one of the major gas and oil producers worldwide.

First, let’s discuss size. Qatar is not that big. The peninsula protrudes into the Arabian/Persian Gulf from Saudi Arabia. From east to west, it is roughly 50 miles, and from north to south, maybe just 100 miles. It is approximately the same area as the United States of Connecticut and Rhode Island.

Can you imagine that?! Yet it’s the most sought-after destination by Travelers and Tourists. It is a well-known fact that 90% of the residents in Qatar are Foreigners originating from 180 different countries (this is one of the most intriguing facts).

Thus, native Qataris constitute a very small portion of the population. English is the most widely used language in Qatar, despite Arabic being the official language and being the language of many foreign residents.

Qatar  Tourists, Travelers

Since the middle of the 1800s, the Al Thani family has ruled Qatar. In the last 60 years, Qatar has gone from a poor British protectorate known mostly for pearling to an autonomous state with substantial oil and natural gas earnings. Leadership changes in 1995 brought about an increasing role for Qatari leadership in the region, significant economic investment, and extensive political and media reforms.

Qatar is always the Vacation Destination or Business Station of most Foreign Tycoons; why?

Qatar’s infrastructure quality is ranked at 3.44. Roads, railroads, ports, and other infrastructure can accommodate large volumes of traffic at all times and are suitable for various transport vehicles and vessels, which is a sign of excellent quality. 97.7% of people in Qatar have access to electricity. In Qatar, there are 897 internet hosts.

With six world-class airports in Qatar, she became a hub for international business tycoons from over 100 countries.

Qatar has a logistics performance index of 3.52. It shows that the logistics system is functioning satisfactorily; traffic is handled well overall, albeit there may be a few glitches in some areas. Overall, the system is dependable and prepared to manage predictable traffic volumes.

The ability to track shipments is evaluated at 3.47. It shows a satisfactory level of performance because the tracking systems offer all the necessary information about shipments and extra data; in most cases, they also have a well-established partnership with international and foreign tracking systems and typically provide information in multiple languages.

Even though Qatar currently faces some environmental challenges, it is making significant strides toward environmentally friendly solutions, including increasing the use of natural solutions, switching to green buildings, investing in solar energy, diversifying energy sources, and implementing an electric public transportation system.

So Qatar remains green for Investors and Business Expatriates.
