    The successful preparation and organisation of the 2022 FIFA World Cup — the largest event ever hosted in the region — led to strong economic growth. The momentum associated with the event contributed to an 8% year-on-year GDP growth for Qatar in Q4 2022, the strongest performance in more than a decade. Importantly, Qatar’s non-energy sector was particularly buoyed, with close to 10% growth during the same period.

    For a country with Qatar’s incredible fossil fuel resources, the move towards decarbonisation is a substantial challenge. But its leaders have acknowledged the importance of placing renewable power and sustainable economic growth at the forefront of the country’s strategy.

    Following the 2022 World Cup, we are experiencing a transformative 2023. Slower credit growth is signalling a shift from rapid non-oil sector expansion, which was driven by extensive infrastructure investments tied to the event. The remarkable infrastructure built for the World Cup will find a new purpose, boosting the economy through international events. The tourism and hospitality sectors, along with upcoming events like the Asian Football Cup and Formula 1 Qatar Grand Prix, will enhance global attention.
  • Sponsored by Doha Bank
    The success of the FIFA World Cup has raised Qatar’s profile as a destination for tourism and foreign direct investment and highlighted its potential as a host for international events. The country invested more than $200bn in infrastructure for the World Cup, which is now expected to result in positive economic multiplier effects. The increase in FDI is a crucial component of economic diversification.
