The latest in TBY’s Global Roundtable Series will bring together different stakeholders to review the health of the Qatari economy in the current context and discuss the government’s latest plans to attract foreign investment into the country. The participants are drawn from a broad section of sectors in order to shed light on the issues at hand from a variety of angles.

Well aware of the importance of economic diversification, Qatar has been working toward boosting the importance of the non-oil sectors in the economy. The ongoing ambitious investment and infrastructure program in the run up to the 2022 FIFA World Cup is acting as a catalyst for this diversified growth. Other government initiatives, such as the visa-on-arrival scheme for 80 nationalities, have been aligned with this vision and will be completed now by a new legislative framework for FDI.
