Qatar: Small businesses earmarked fro growth as diversification gains pace
Oxford Business Group and Clyde & Co team up for 2012 publication
Doha, Qatar - 26 March 2012: Qatar's bid to diversify its economy away from hydrocarbons while driving forward a wave of massive infrastructure projects will be mapped out in a new report to be published by the global publishing, research and consultancy firm Oxford Business Group (OBG).
The Report: Qatar 2012 will provide in-depth analysis of the country's efforts to encourage entrepreneurial activity by stepping up support for small businesses and providing them with increased access to finance. It will also contain a detailed, sector-by-sector guide for foreign investors, alongside a wide range of interviews with the most prominent political, economic and business leaders.
OBG will team up for a fifth consecutive year with the international law firm Clyde & Co who will contribute the legal chapter of The Report Qatar: 2012.
OBG's Regional Editor, Oliver Cornock, said he expected the Group's new report to put the spotlight on the country's efforts to boost private sector participation and drive growth in new areas of the economy, such as services, in line with the state's long-term development plan, Qatar National Vision 2030. He also highlighted the contribution that Clyde & Co had made over time to the research process in OBG's publications.
David Salt, Partner at Clyde and Co, agreed that Qatar's drive to encourage growth among small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) was gaining pace. He also highlighted the developments taking place in emerging areas of the economy, such as aluminium and fertilisers.
"There are signs that initiatives being put in place, such as a comprehensive business support system, are helping to bolster entrepreneurial ventures in Qatar," he said. "We welcome the opportunity therefore to continue our long standing collaboration with Oxford Business Group and to contribute to The Report: Qatar 2012."
"It remains a great pleasure to work with OBG's dynamic and proactive editorial team in the production of a publication to document these and other significant developments taking place in Qatar and relaying them on the global stage."
The Report: Qatar 2012 will be a vital guide to the many facets of the country, including its macroeconomics, infrastructure, banking and other sectoral developments. The report will be available in print or online.
