Opportunities exist across a range of sectors which include healthcare, infrastructure, water, education, food and drink.
Qatar is the third largest economy in the Middle East behind Saudi Arabia and UAE. It is a popular market for British and Irish businesses and offers many opportunities including the upcoming World Cup in 2022 as well as life sciences, construction, financial services, energy, defence and security.
