Special report: Tamim’s Qatar - a year of consolidation

Qatar Emir Tamim reportEmir Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad’s first year in office, has been – as widely expected – a period of continuity and consolidation, not change.

In this special report, GSN reviews Tamim’s first year, considering the economy, domestic and foreign politics, the energy sector, the non-oil sector, infrastructure development, international investment, and the young emir’s ‘vision’ for his country.

It finds that, while Sheikh Tamim’s promises to streamline bureaucracy, to maintain an independent foreign policy, and to consolidate economic growth do all seem to be making (slow) progress, there is still much that is unknown about the new emir.

Progress in Hodeidah but warnings of trouble elsewhere in Yemen

In United Nations-backed talks in Hodeidah in mid-February, a detailed programme of action was agreed to implement a Houthi withdrawal from the port city – the first of the three areas of agreement at the Stockholm peace conference in December. The plan should allow a resumption of humanitarian operations at the port under UN supervision – a critical step if the famine sweeping Yemen is to be tackled – but progress remains painfully slow and Hodeidah remains just one part of a complex arena.
