Qatar is a very small country, in 2008 the population was nearly reaching one million and a half (1,5M), but its GDP in USD is pretty big : 67,8 billions, which just give us a GDP per capita of 72 849 USD ! Qatar had always had a GDP a way bigger than the average in Middle East. The major religion is Islam (95%) but all religions are practiced.
Qatar is at the second stage oftransition, between the stage where the development is directed by the efficiency and where it is leaded by innovation. The country must fight with five major problems like : Restrictive labor regulations, Inflation, Inadequate supply of infrastructure, Inadequately educated workforce and Inefficient government bureaucracy. They must fight versus those problems to finish their evolution and being atthe last stage of development.
Beside that, Qatar is the first Middle East country in the ranking of 2008-2009 being at the 26th place, they were respectively in the two previous reports at the 31rst and at the 32nd places.
In fact Qatar has everything to become a really well developed country, they only lack of good infrastructure and their market is really too small (Oilprincipally), they rank at the 61rst place out of 134 which is just at the average. The second thing they really lack to become a real economic power is innovation; the country is, compared to other Middle East country, really well developed but the lack of innovation and business sophistication is lowering the efficiency of all the business running in the country.
{draw:frame} On the board belowyou can see that there is no major problem for Qatar to became a real economic power in the world, but this is because they were growing, economically speaking, really fast those few past years.
But you can also see that Qatar got really good institutions and educational environment, the 5 universities in Doha are each of them in their own sectors ranked pretty well. And you can see that Qatarmake high level institutions, all their buildings are modern and equipped with the best technologies.
But the country must adapt itself to the growth of the economy, but it cannot do it as fast as the economy is growing right now. But in a few years it’s sure that Qatar would be one of the major economies in the world and be ranking in the top 15, principally thanks to the oil.
To concludewith this part here are the principals actualized numbers concerning Qatar :
Population (est. millions), 2008..........................................................1,4
GDP (US$ billions), 2008..................................................................102.3
GDP per capita (US$), 2008 ........................................................93,204.1
