Your connected world-class infrastructure

Your business will be up and running in no time, and on the move too given Qatar’s world-class connected infrastructure, transportation and technology.

The government’s vision is being realised through a $200bn investment in world-class infrastructure across the nation, infrastructure supported by transportation and smart cities, which will enable you to connect to local, regional and international commerce, localise your supply chain — and ultimately lead to new customers. 
Ranked the 4th best airport in the world by the renowned SKYTRAX organisation, Hamad International encompasses one of the most sophisticated cargo terminals in the industry making it ideal for global trade. Qatar’s highly innovative airport is complemented by a $7bn investment in Hamad Port, which, when completed in 2020, will become the world’s largest greenfield port and Qatar’s maritime gateway for trade.

The country’s proximity to the Arabian Gulf makes it ideally placed to connect your trade with the Gulf region and the world beyond.

Moving goods through air or sea is supported by considerable land development through the multi-billion-dollar Expressway Programme, which focuses on improvement in roads and bridges, and the Doha Metro, which, once completed, will operate three lines over 100 stations.
