The State of Qatar, in just a short span of a few decades commencing in the late 20th Century, has been transformed from a small, traditional Bedouin country into a modern nation, recognized as one of the world’s wealthiest and most progressive nations, due in large part to the discovery of sizeable natural gas deposits. For 4 consecutive years during 2008-2012, Qatar was the world’s fastest growing economy, with a real GDP compounded annual growth rate of 12%. In addition, Qatar’s GDP is expected to grow 6.6% by the end of 2015, and at a higher pace of 6.8% by the end of 2016. For those familiar with or having lived in Qatar, the rapid modernization and achievement of the country could not have been possible without the enlightened vision and commitment of its leadership. Through the reigns of H.H. SHEIKH HAMAD BIN KHALIFA AL THANI, and his successor, H.H. SHEIKH TAMIM BIN HAMAD AL THANI, the current Emir of Qatar, the country has been blessed with leadership that has shown both a vision and a determination to tirelessly foster commercial and social progress within its borders and to lead the country forward, establishing Qatar as a modern society. Through their combined efforts, Qatar has been elevated alongside other developed nations of the world and is now recognized throughout the world for its active role in helping to resolve some of the toughest global issues. Similarly, from the earliest stages of its conception, our company, MOHAMED BIN HAMAD HOLDING COMPANY, has proudly adopted this same approach in working to establish Qatar as one of the best places to live, work and do business – for its employees, citizens, residents and visitors alike.
