Qatar offers opportunities for young experts in the hospitality and tourism industry to begin their professional career in some of the most prestigious hotel and world chains worldwide. In addition to excellent working environment, the employers also provide their employees with excellent living conditions.
Qatar is known as “the pearl of the Persian Gulf” for a reason. Endless sea shore, exotic scenery, warm water throughout the whole year, combined with entertainment opportunities such as shopping in the luxurious shopping centers of the capital, resting in expensive hotels and clubbing all night long in fashionable bars and clubs.
Although Qatar became known to tourists very recently when in 1989 the government decided to open the country’s borders for foreigners, the country has already become one of the most popular tourist destinations.
As the EU is a desired partner for Qatar, the country introduced flexible legislation which promotes the development of the private sector and attracts foreign investments. The country caries out a targeted policy to attract foreign experts. In the unique Education City located on the outskirts of Doha there are students from 47 countries from all over the world. And the emirate is open for experts in genetic engineering, bio- and high technologies.
Qatar is bordered by Saudi Arabi to the south; otherwise the Persian Gulf surrounds the state. The population is 700 000, most of which live in the capital of Doha. Up to 1971 Qatar was a British Protectorate. At present the state is ruled by Emir Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani. Qatar is one of the states richest in oil. Before the gas and oil fields were exploited the local population relied mostly on pearl trade. At present the state is one of the richest countries in the world with average income per capita 63 000 USD.
All these facts make Qatar one of the preferred places for professional development of both highly qualified experts and hospitality experts.
