Emerging Threat

st-32

Qatar has a rapidly-growing economy, owing to its rich gas reserves, and is also actively developing world-class logistics infrastructure. It has a free zone at the Doha International Airport and has formulated plans to establish two more free zones — one in close proximity to the Mesaieed Industrial City (MIC) and another that is expected to cater to the transport and manufacturing industries. Specialised industrial activity and warehousing zones in the country is led by ‘Logistics Village Qatar’, which is spread across one million square metres. Qatar is located midway along the Arabian Gulf with easy connectivity and proximity to Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Kuwait, as well as Iraq, and a major part of Iran. This proximity, coupled with initiatives for developing an integrated logistics infrastructure, could turn Qatar into a viable alternative logistics hub within the GCC.
