The UK enjoys a healthy trading relationship with Qatar and British exports to Qatar have more than doubled in the last few years. Qatar has the third largest economy in the GCC, after Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The International Monetary Fund (IMF) forecasts that Qatar will have the highest real growth in the region over the next 4 years. Its population is expected to grow by 7% in 2015 due to a large influx in expatriates. Qatar plans to invest up to US$220 billion in infrastructure over the next 7 years. This is in support of the Football World Cup in 2022 and its National Vision 2030. It is one of the most ambitious infrastructure programmes in the world.
Company representatives attending trade shows and international market events are advised that Arabic business cards and promotional materials should be considered a basic requirement: overseas events provide an excellent opportunity to make new contacts and to exchange information about your company’s products & services.
Not only is this an important opportunity to provide essential contact information in your client’s language, it also shows a degree of commitment and indicates respect towards your potential business partners.
