Qatar has been a major player in the Middle East since the early 1900s. The country has evolved from a small fishing village into a global player on the world stage. Its economy is based on hydrocarbon exports and its natural gas reserves which make up approximately 85% of its hydrocarbon exports (55 percent from oil and 35 percent from natural gas). Since 1972, Qatar has risen from a small fishing village into one of the wealthiest countries in the world thanks to this wealth-generating resource and technological innovation within their own borders.
Qatar’s economy is the 12th largest in the world and the 3rd wealthiest in the Middle East.

Qatar is home to over 1.9 million people, has a GDP of US$270 billion, and has an oil production capacity of over 2-million barrels per day. The country is rich in oil and natural gas, but also possesses vast amounts of hydrocarbons that can be used for electricity generation or transportation fuel (gasoline). In addition to these energy reserves, Qatar also has significant reserves of other minerals such as bauxite; iron ore; gypsum; lime; salt rock; silica sand; marble stone blocks/slabs etcetera.
The country’s oil production capacity exceeds 2 million barrels per day (MMBPD), making it one of the world’s largest producers. In fact, Qatar has been ranked among the top 10 global suppliers for several years running.
This makes it an important player on international markets for both energy resources and consumer goods such as food products or clothing items sold overseas through trade agreements made between multiple countries around the world including those who live near them like Saudi Arabia which borders them along with other nations like Bahrain where there was also an uprising against their government last year when they tried removing power from those living there during times where they were trying protect themselves against what seemed like oppression from other groups within society who wanted things done differently than how things worked before when leaders ruled over people without asking questions first

Qatar is the world’s largest exporter of liquefied natural gas (LNG), with an annual production capacity of more than 12 billion cubic feet per day (BCF/d). It also produces approximately 4 million barrels per day (BPD) of crude oil and has a modern transportation infrastructure that includes roads, railways and airports.
Qatar has a location and infrastructure that make it an ideal place to ship goods, which is why its economy relies on this type of trade. It’s also important to note that Qatar has a high level of trade, making it one of the most important countries in terms of economic prosperity and peace in the Middle East.
Qatar has been able to achieve this success by opening up trade with other countries including Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain and Egypt which have helped boost its economy significantly since they are all members of GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council).

The Qatari economy is supported by many factors including gas production, transportation infrastructure, technological innovation and economic diversification.
