Doha is the capital of Qatar, and the country’s largest city and economic centre. Home to more than 80% of Qatar’s population, many are drawn in by Doha’s economic and business opportunities.
Doha’s demographics are unique – majority of their residents are expatriates from various South Asian, Middle Eastern, North American and European countries. The mix of people from all over the world creates a city that is not only welcoming of newcomers, but one that is urban and globalised.
Education has been a major focus of the government for many years. With the Education City located in Doha, it is home to the branch campuses of the world’s leading universities and houses educational facilities – from elementary school to research institutions. This emphasis placed on education contributes to a pool of youth that are increasingly educated, that are open to innovation and with new ideas that businesses can tap.
Doha’s economy is built mainly from its oil and natural gas industries. However, it has made significant strides in diversifying the country’s revenue sources to tourism, services, arts and culture.
To further support their growth, Doha has also made enhancements to its transport and infrastructure such as in airport, roads and railways.
