Qatar’s inward and outward investment will likely grow

Thursday, November 29, 2018

Significance

Having largely overcome the economic impact of the regional boycott, Qatar is doubling down on efforts to attract inward investment. At the same time as seeking foreign participation to expand its liquified natural gas (LNG) output, Doha is once again pushing diversification. Meanwhile, it has restructured the leadership of the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA), its sovereign wealth fund.

Impacts

  • Major investment opportunities from the QIA will influence geopolitical calculations.
  • Companies investing in Qatar may risk losing favour in Saudi and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
  • Deals for new LNG trains will influence financial investment decisions on other LNG projects internationally.
