DOHA, May 29 (Reuters) - Qatar's gross domestic product
(GDP) should grow 3.5% in 2022, Central Bank Governor Sheikh
Bandar bin Mohammed bin Saoud Al-Thani told a conference on
Sunday in Doha.
Al-Thani was citing forecasts from international
The energy-rich Gulf emirate plans to start licensing
financial technology companies soon, he added.
Fitch Ratings in April forecast Qatar's GDP would grow 3.2%
in 2022, from 1.6% in 2021, reflecting increased output from the
soccer World Cup that the country is hosting in November and
December and the post-pandemic recovery.
