Qatar - Industry

Economic growth was scant in Q4 2018, decelerating sharply on the back of contractions in the mining and quarrying and manufacturing sectors. Moving to Q1 2019, PMI data for the first two months suggests the non-oil private sector expanded at a moderate pace in the quarter. On the upside, private sector credit growth year-on-year was solid in the first two months, which, coupled with subdued price pressures, should have supported consumer spending. However, the external sector was soft, with exports declining in January and February. In other news, Qatar raised USD 12 billion on 6 March in an oversubscribed bond sale, indicating strong investor sentiment despite ongoing regional political rifts with neighbors.
