Doing Business in Qatar

A Warm Welcome to Qatar - A Hub for Business Excellence

Business opportunities are plentiful in Qatar, and growing more so every day.

At Qtel, we have invested more than QR3 billion in network infrastructure to provide the best possible resources for the people of Qatar.  Our Qtel Fibre initiative is also well underway with, to date, QR650 million allocated to connect homes, small businesses and large enterprises throughout the country.

The high-speed broadband that Qtel Fibre will soon fuel is already changing the way we communicate with each other, both here in Qatar and with businesses abroad.

Qtel's significant contribution is one of the factors that have enabled Qatar to rise five places to the 25th position of the most networked ready-nations in the world, according to the Global Information and Technology Report 2010-2011. Couple this with our streamlined processes that support new start-ups, and our "one stop shop" approach to providing comprehensive technological and business solutions for new and established companies, and a clear roadmap for success emerges.

If you're looking to do business in Qatar, then Qtel is the ideal partner to help you get started. If you're a successful business looking to grow, we are your strongest partner for development. A warm welcome to Qatar on behalf of all of us at Qtel Business Solutions.


Eng. Khalid Abdulla Al Mansouri, Executive Director, Business Solutions
