Background:

Qatar occupies a small peninsula that extends from the east side of the Arabian Peninsula. 

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.
Oil and natural gas revenues enable Qatar to have a per capita income not far below the leading industrial countries of Western Europe.

Despite challenging times, Qatar remains one of the most competitive and powerful economies in the region. known for its gas reserves, Qatar has not been affected by the drop in the price of oil to the extent of other countries who heavily rely on oil exports. Qatar has maintained its position at the top of the international table for GDP per capita.
