Jones Lang LaSalle real estate services in Qatar
With the world’s largest gas deposits and the third largest Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) exporter and a small population, Qatar has the world’s highest GDP per capita. Qatar may be poised to weather the downturn better than other GCC economies as most of its revenues are from LNG which is still in high demand.
The economy has also been focused on the real estate and construction sector, which is expected to continue playing a major role in the local economy. The introduction of ambitious projects such as Lusail, The Pearl, Energy City, Qatar Financial Centre and Education City is expected to support growth in the real estate sector, although projects may be slowed due to current global financial circumstances.
