Fiscal Balance in Qatar

Qatar Fiscal Balance | Economic News & Forecasts

Qatar - Fiscal Balance

The economy should have remained relatively weak in the final quarter of last year. The industrial production index declined in November driven by decreases across the board—suggesting the mining and manufacturing sectors were depressed in Q4, contrasting a solid third quarter. Moreover, merchandise exports remained in the doldrums up to December, with last year’s total exports plunging owing to lower hydrocarbon shipments. In better news, the non-oil private sector PMI averaged higher than in the previous quarter, although still remained soft, while credit conditions were favorable throughout Q4 as seen by healthy private sector credit levels.
