Moved from main article, so we don't look silly by attempting to predict the past: "If high oil prices continue in 2000, Qatar will post its highest ever trade surplus - of more than $4 billion."

It's sillier that you're using rials rather than riyals

Merger from Qatarization[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section. A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
The result of the discussion was not to merge the article. Bilby (talk) 23:44, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Horrible idea to merge Qatarization with this article. Qatarization is a process of making all job-holders in Qatar Qataris. This has enormous social implications throughout the world - definitely a notable event.

I suggest we get rid of the merger proposal. The best thing that can be done is expand the Qatarization article, make a small section here that says main article: Qatarization. Ratibgreat (talk) 07:20, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

"Qatar is now the richest country in the Muslim world"[edit]

Surely this isn't the whole truth. I assume that this is per capita of course and anyway it should say "Qatar is now the richest country in the world"? GDP per capita is ranked the highest in the world by most studies recently at well over US$100k per annum per capita.--ЗAНИA talk WB talk] 23:01, 25 March 2013 (UTC)
