Qatar has enormous oil and gas wealth, especially in relation to the size of its national population. Qatar has the third largest gas reserves in the world after Russia and Iran. At current extraction rates Qatar’s proven gas reserves would last at least another 156 years.
With the highest savings rate in the world (58.4% of GDP), Qatar has large potential for further growth through domestic investments in the non-hydrocarbon sector. A major program of infrastructure investments has been launched to support the diversification of the economy away from hydrocarbons, leading to double-digit growth in the non-hydrocarbon sector. The main areas of investment have shifted from oil and gas to construction and transport.
