Qatar - GDP

Growth should have picked up in Q1, after a weak Q4 last year. In Q1, the PMI for the non-energy sector improved somewhat from Q4, as private-sector credit growth was elevated and hotel occupancy rates improved. Less positively, industrial production dipped in March and merchandise exports fell in Q1 in year-on-year terms, hinting at a soft energy sector. Looking to Q2, the non-energy sector PMI survey declined in April due to more sluggish new orders growth. However, month-on-month building permits growth was solid in April, suggesting improving construction activity. In politics, Qatar’s PM recently met with several top GCC officials to discuss heightened tensions in the region. This signals a potential thawing in relations with the GCC, after the bloc imposed sanctions on Qatar in 2017.
