Private-sector growth and new government initiatives to support long-term economic diversification and sustainability will be the focus of the global research, publishing and consultancy firm Oxford Business Group’s (OBG) upcoming economic report on the country, ‘The Report: Qatar 2019’.

New developments in Qatar’s economy, including measures to support non-hydrocarbon growth and priority industries including agriculture, manufacturing, and defense, will be explored in OBG’s economic analysis. ‘The Report: Qatar 2019’ will provide in-depth coverage of the country’s diversification efforts and strategies to boost investment in high-growth sectors and increase the role played by the private sector in the national economy.

Alongside the comprehensive analysis of key sectors including the strong project pipeline in infrastructure, construction, and energy, the publication will also highlight areas with robust growth potential and opportunities for increased private-sector involvement. This coverage will highlight measures to help the country meet its long-term economic objectives outlined in Qatar National Vision 2030 and the recently-launched Second National Development Strategy (2018-22). Opportunities for public-private partnerships (PPPs)in sectors including health and education, as well as initiatives to support private-sector growth, particularly from SMEs, by organizations including the Qatar Development Bank and Qatar Business Incubation Centre, will also be covered in the research.

OBG has recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Qatar Chamber for its forthcoming publication, ‘The Report: Qatar 2019’. This partnership will facilitate the exchange of information between the representatives of Oxford Business Group and Qatar Chamber in areas such as business environment, commerce, industry, and Qatar’s international business collaborations. As part of the MoU, all members of Qatar Chamber will also benefit from complimentary access to Oxford Business Group’s digital library with reports on over 35 countries.

“Oxford Business Group is delighted to partner with Qatar Chamber- one of the oldest chambers of commerce in the GCC countries, operating for 55 years,” said Izabela Kruk, Country Director of Oxford Business Group. “Qatar Chamber is the key organization representing the private sector and is very active both locally and internationally. We are looking forward to working with Qatar Chamber as we prepare The Report: Qatar 2019.”

Saleh bin Hamad Al Sharqi, Director-General of Qatar Chamber, welcomed the partnership with OBG and the access the partnership will provide to the Group’s wealth of data, analysis and economic coverage. “We look forward to working with Oxford Business Group to enhance the analysis of private-sector growth in Qatar in their upcoming Report, whilst also benefiting from credible and detailed information on global markets from a leading provider of actionable business intelligence and analysis,” he said.
