Industry in Qatar
Qatar - IndustryAlthough the economy expanded at a weak pace in the first three months of 2018 due to a decrease in mining and quarrying output, construction activity increased significantly as preparations continued for the 2022 World Cup. Meanwhile, the economy has shown signs of strength in recent months: In May, the merchandise trade surplus grew by nearly 40% year-on-year due to increased energy exports. This highlights the resilience of the external sector, given that Qatar continues to face a trade embargo from several of its neighbors, led by Saudi Arabia. Moreover, in June, business conditions improved in the non-oil and gas private sector for the eleventh consecutive month.
