Located halfway along the western coast of the Gulf and spread over 11,000 square kilometers, the State of Qatar benefits from its strategic location - halfway between Europe and Asia. Being a link between the East and West and its easy accessibility from some of the world’s major cities has made Qatar a preferred destination for investors and entrepreneurs.
Qatar has in a very short period of time advanced its aviation and maritime means of transportation. It is now easily accessible from over 100 major cities from around the world, thanks to Qatar Airways, the country’s flagship airline, which has direct flights to these destinations. This allows for an ideal destination to set up businesses and investment projects in various fields.
Hamad port is Qatar’s gateway to international shipping to and from more than 150 maritime destinations worldwide. It is also one of the largest and most advanced ports in the Middle East. Due to its huge potential and modern facilities, Hamad Port has contributed to the increasing volume of trade between Qatar and the rest of the world. Doha has become a regional hub that stimulates the region’s trade with the world.
Qatar Airways facilitates travel to different destinations on many direct flights. The airline connects Qatar with regional strategic countries like Oman, Turkey, Iran and India; operates direct flights to the Eastern part of Africa and to renowned world trade centers like Hong Kong, Singapore, London and New York. Other national carriers from different countries across the five continents also have flights to Doha. These flights facilitate investor transportation to and out of Qatar.
