Qatar’s Regulations – Striking a balance between protectionist measures and encouragement of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Qatar
Sheikha Maha Khalid Al Thani
The Qatari National Vision 2030 aims at diversifying the economy, one way is through Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). FDI is helpful to improve an economy’s growth as it provides new opportunities through new knowledge and skills. There are a number of different ways for foreign investors to invest in Qatar. However, these methods are heavily regulated, so that Qatari companies are adequately protected. This essay will focus upon ownership and the use of commercial agents to discuss the quotation. This article will argue that although Qatar’s regulation might discourage some investors, the law finds an appropriate balance between the protection of Qatari interests and encouragement of FDI.
