The Gulf crisis has boosted the confidence of Qatari businessmen and they are ambitiously investing in multiple sectors, Anwar Ali Shah, a senior expert in design and infrastructure, told Qatar Urdu Radio's live show Haqeeqat on Thursday.
"Qatari businessmen now have more confidence. More than 60% of Qatar's export is outside the Gulf region and with the reduced competition from the blockading countries the prospects are looking really bright for local businesses and industries," he said. Last updated: October 12 2017 11:05 PM
"The crisis also helped the government to focus on domestic market and move towards self-sufficiency," he added.
Haqeeqat, which aims to engage and interact with the large South Asian expatriate community in Qatar, is a joint venture of the Gulf Times and Qatar Media Corporation Urdu Radio.
It is broadcast from Sunday to Thursday on FM107. The show is hosted by Saif-ur-Rehman.
