Trade & Investment

Qatar 2015 Trade & Investment

Qatar’s healthy trade surpluses, expanding international investment portfolio, and growing bilateral relations in Asia and Europe have driven the state’s trade and investment growth in recent years. Amendments to the Investment Law of 2000 in 2004, 2009 and 2014 have opened up investment opportunities by enabling foreigners to participate in financial services, hold stakes of 49% in listed companies and up to 100% of businesses in some sectors. Meanwhile, in a bid to attract investment and develop local talent, Qatar is launching three special economic zones to serve as the base of a homegrown private sector. This chapter contains interviews with Shashank Srivastava, CEO, Qatar Financial Centre Authority; and Lim Hng Kiang, Singaporean Minister for Trade & Industry.
