Fiscal Balance in Qatar

Qatar - Fiscal Balance

The latest data suggests the economy could have lost some momentum in Q4 2018. December’s industrial production growth decelerated on a slowdown in the extraction of crude oil and natural gas. Moreover, the real estate index continued to decline in Q4 in annual terms, while tourist arrivals were soft. Moving to Q1, growth will likely moderate further: January’s merchandise exports shrank at the fastest pace in over two years due to a decline in oil shipments. More positively, Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil agreed to a USD 10 billion investment in a Texas-based LNG project, which should provide a reliable revenue stream to the state-owned oil company.
