Having consistently been ranked as one of the top economies globally in competitiveness, communications and innovation, Qatar boasts one of the strongest and fastest growing economies in the region and continues to attract international investors and businesses to its shores.
Situated in the One Belt, One Road region, Qatar and China continue to strengthen economic and bilateral trade ties, with a 45% increase in trade volume between Qatar and China in the first quarter of 2018, compared to the same period in 2017.
As the only country in the region to boast a currency-swap agreement with the Chinese central bank, and the first in the region to host a Renminbi clearing and settlement centre, it is no wonder why Chinese companies continue to see Qatar as a lucrative destination.
