Airswift selected as recruitment partner for Qatar guide

Doha, Qatar, 11 February 2019: Airswift, the global workforce solutions provider for the energy, process and infrastructure sectors, have been selected as the market experts for recruitment and staffing services in the new “Doing Business in Qatar Guide”.

Published by the UK Institute of Export & International Trade, the guide can be downloaded as a pdf, flipbook or as a mobile app and is a must read for global firms looking to do business in Qatar.

About the guide

This guide aims to provide a route map of the way ahead, together with signposts to other sources of help.

The main objective of this Doing Business in Qatar Guide is to provide you with basic knowledge about Qatar; an overview of its economy, business culture, potential opportunities and to identify the main issues associated with initial research, market entry, risk management and cultural and language issues.

Country overview

Qatar is a small independent sovereign state in the Middle East and is one of the six members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). It is a relatively small country, but one of the richest in the world with a very high gross domestic product (GDP) per head. This affluent market with its growing population offers opportunities for UK businesses across a wide range of sectors.

It has significant oil and gas reserves, and energy production per head dwarfs the other Gulf countries. As oil prices can and do fluctuate, the government is using the revenue generated to diversify its economy including significant investment in infrastructure projects.

Qatar has transformed itself over the past two decades from a relatively unknown Gulf State to a prominent player on the world stage. Exploiting its significant oil and gas reserves, it has embarked on one of the largest and most ambitious infrastructure programmes in the world with projected spend of around £140 billion to deliver its 2030 Qatar National Vision (focused on economic, social, human and environmental development) and the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
