The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has recently reported that Qatar’s economy has stabilized in 2023, after experiencing a surge driven by the World Cup. The country’s economic growth is expected to continue with a positive medium-term outlook, thanks to an expansion in LNG production and ongoing reform efforts.
The IMF highlighted that Qatar’s economy benefited from disciplined fiscal management during a period of increased revenue from hydrocarbon exports in 2022-23. This led to significant surpluses and a rapid reduction of central government debt.
These developments indicate a favorable economic climate for Qatar as it moves forward, with the potential for sustained growth and continued fiscal responsibility. The IMF’s assessment highlights the promising prospects for Qatar’s economic growth and the positive impact of ongoing reform efforts.
