Ruled by the Al-Thani family since the mid-1800s, Qatar transformed itself from a poor British protectorate noted mainly for pearling into an independent state with significant oil and natural gas revenues. During the late 1980s and early 1990s, the Qatari economy was crippled by a continuous siphoning off of petroleum revenues by the Amir, who had ruled the country since 1972. His son, the current Amir HAMAD bin Khalifa Al-Thani, overthrew him in a bloodless coup in 1995. In 2001, Qatar resolved its longstanding border disputes with both Bahrain and Saudi Arabia. As of 2007, oil and natural gas revenues had enabled Qatar to attain the highest per capita income in the world. (from the CIA)
 
 

 

Economic Overview

Qatar is in the midst of an economic boom supported by its expanding production of natural gas and oil. economic policy is focused on development of qatar's nonassociated natural gas reserves and increasing private and foreign investment in non-energy sectors. oil and gas account for more than 60% of gdp, roughly 85% of export earnings, and 70% of government revenues. oil and gas have made qatar the highest per-capita income country and one of the world's fastest growing. sustained high oil prices and increased natural gas exports in recent years have helped build qatar's budget and trade surpluses and foreign reserves. proved oil reserves of more than 15 billion barrels should ensure continued output at current levels for 22 years. qatar's proved reserves of natural gas are roughly 25 trillion cubic meters, about 15% of the world total and third largest in the world. qatar has permitted substantial foreign investment in the development of its gas fields during the last decade and became the world's top liquefied natural gas (lng) exporter in 2007.
