Pearl of the Persian Gulf
Qatar may be one of the world’s smallest countries, but it is also the richest. Developing at breakneck speed, the country has steadily risen from the sands like a glittering behemoth and continues to attract foreign professionals from all walks of life.
Situated on the Arabian Peninsula, the small emirate of Qatar – and particularly its rapidly developing capital city of Doha – is a hive of commercial activity that is certainly making the world sit up and take notice. Once home to a pearl industry, Qatar has since managed to blossom in its arid surroundings on the back of gas and oil, emerging as a powerful global player and boasting one of the highest incomes per capita in the world.
With mushrooming cities, Qatar now employs expats not only in its renowned energy sector, but also in IT, construction, business and tourism. More and more expats are incentivised to work in Qatar, saving money in the tax-free environment while enjoying an excellent standard of living.
