Qatar Eyes 7% Growth

The figure compares with estimated growth of 6.5% for 2014. The Qatar National Bank’s “Economic Insight” predicted even higher growth rates of 7.5% for 2016 and 7.9% for 2017 in the gas-rich Persian Gulf state. “Qatar is well-positioned to withstand the temporary decline in oil prices due to its strong macroeconomic fundamentals,” the QNB report said. “With substantial financial resources, Qatar has ample external and fiscal buffers to continue implementing its ambitious investment program.
