Qatar in the Eastern Midwest

In an effort to further enhance economic and cultural ties with the United States, Qatar conducts outreach with major American cultural and economic hubs.

From agriculture to the automotive industry, the Midwest is an industrial and economic powerhouse that often serves as a bellwether for U.S. economic growth and exports. Midwestern cities are home to some of the country’s leading cultural and educational institutions, with architectural treasures and historical landmarks that rival their peer coastal cities. From the University of Michigan to Ohio State University to the University of Chicago, the Midwest’s research and academic capabilities form a knowledge hub for America and the world.

As Qatar implements measures to position itself as a regional trading and financial hub, with innovation at the heart of its progress, the Midwestern United States’ advanced and highly diverse economy creates opportunities for Qatari investments and provides a model that Doha can emulate.
