Doha – boom city for relocation

Jun 25, 2013
The city of Doha sits baking on the west coast of Qatar, a peninsular of land jutting out into the Persian Gulf sandwiched between Bahrain and Abu Dhabi. Summer temperatures frequently reach 40 °C and rain is scarce at only 75mm a year, making it one of the driest places on Earth.


As with many countries in the Middle East, Qatar’s fortune has been made through rich reserves of oil and gas and today tops the world’s rich list with the highest GDP and a growth rate of a staggering 19% (2010), the highest in the world.

Doha, the country’s capital, is a modern rapidly developing city and, considering the money being poured into upgrading the port, roads, communications and the airport, Doha looks set to become one of the premier cities in the Gulf within a few years. Some say it will become the next Dubai. With the somewhat controversial decision to award the 2022 World Cup to Qatar, the race is on to complete the work before the fans arrive and the world’s media puts the country in the spotlight.

With around 70% of Qatar’s 1.9 million population being expats and the number of foreign workers taking up contracts set to increase the market for relocation companies looks set to boom. 

Interem, a leading player in the global relocation industry, identified Doha as the next stop after its successful operations in UAE and India.  The Dubai-based company has been working in Doha for five years and it is now its fastest growing market. In 2012 the company opened a new facility in one of the city’s most prestigious districts.

Interem offers a full relocation service in Doha and has achieved ISO certification to bring its operating procedures in line with FIDI standards already being followed at its other locations. The company was formed in Dubai in 1995 and today offers relocation services to more than 170 countries worldwide through its own offices and with the help of the Group Partner Program (GPP) makes it one of the fastest growing relocation companies in the region.

The company has employees from more than 10 different nationalities enabling it to understand its international customers better. The company believes this multi lingual, multi-cultural approach is an important part of building a successful relocation business. Interem also believes being affiliated to prestigious organisations including FIDI, OMNI, BAR and ERC gives reassurance to customers and ensures best practice is followed globally.
