Public Debt in Qatar

Qatar Public Debt | Economic News & Forecasts

Qatar - Public Debt

The economy rebounded in year-on-year terms in Q2, spearheaded by a solid expansion in the non-energy sector, although the result was flattered by a base effect, and energy sector growth was mild. Turning to Q3, the economic picture is mixed. The non-energy PMI averaged markedly higher relative to Q2 thanks to the rollback of Covid-19 restrictions. However, energy output was down in annual terms in July and August. Moving to the fourth quarter, the government implemented the final phase of its lockdown easing plan in early October, which involved loosening capacity restrictions on public venues and should be supporting services activity in the period. In other news, Qatar Energy recently signed a 15-year LNG supply deal with a Chinese firm. This is one of a number of long-term supply agreements inked this year, which should provide greater stability to the energy sector ahead.
