Recent Report Places Qatar Within The Top 5

Qatar is rated fourth among the list of top five in the world and also the top within the GCC countries in the Global Retail Development Index (GRDI), according to a study recently released by AT Kearney.

Shamail Siddiqi, principal (Consumer and Retail Practice) AT Kearney Middle East, said, "Regardless of the record decrease in oil prices, retail sales growth is predicted to carry on its momentum. Indeed, the shopping space pipeline remains strong, with a number of major initiatives in progress in Qatar and also the UAE and Oman. Several suppliers view Qatar as the natural next step for increasing their regional presence. The country’s spectacular GDP per capita, together with the dedicated infrastructure initiatives, has made it a market suppliers can't afford to ignore."
