The State of Qatar is a peninsula situated halfway down the western coast of the Arabian Gulf. The coastline is 550 kilometers long and bounds the country to the west, north, and east. With the exception of scattered hill formations in the west and sand dunes in the southeast, Qatar is generally a flat desert terrain. The total land area of Qatar is approximately 11,627 square kilometers. Doha is the capital of Qatar and located in the middle of east coast.
Qatar is one of the world’s most dynamic and fastest growing economies, as well as one of the world’s wealthiest nations in terms of per capita GDP as reported in 2016. Qatar has proven hydrocarbon reserves that can be utilized over the next 100 years, enabling the country to offer a uniquely sustainable platform for long-term growth and development.
Qatar’s geographical location makes it convenient for the local business sector to deal with international suppliers or partners, with the ease of the shipping and logistics capabilities brought by the newly-opened state-of-the-art commercial ports in the country, such as the Hamad Port.
