Country Profile: Qatar

An Overview for Expatriates

In steeped-in-tradition Qatar, you can learn about the ancient pursuit of falconry, watch camels race across the desert and admire traditional dhows (wooden cargo boats) bobbing on the water. But the country is developing rapidly, with the capital Doha a world-class city in the making, thanks to its spectacular modern skyline, peerless Museum of Islamic Art, a fine and expansive traditional souq, and burgeoning arts and culinary scenes.

On any given day you could sample a portfolio of sophisticated restaurants and then watch the sun set over sand dunes that seem to spring from a fairy tale.

One of the largest oil and natural gas producers in the world, Qatar has a booming economy and rapidly growing infrastructure. With one of the highest global per capita incomes and smallest populations of any country, Qatar has high living standards and a need for a skilled expatriate workforce to develop services in most sectors to international standards.
