  • Description

    The Gulf State of Qatar has long bee conscious of the economic hazards of over-dependence on a primary source of national revenue -- the consequence of the Japanese cultured pearls on the diminishing market at a fraction of the price of pure Gulf pearls can still be recalled. The people are presently pinning their brightest and commercial diversification aimed at gaining maximum benefits from oil revenues.

    Over the last few years, Qatar has concentrated a good deal of the oil revenues on fishing, cement production, housing and building, natural gas exploration, transportation, and domestic industrial projects.

    Fishing and cement production have produced the most favourable results. Visnews staffman Noel Alexandre shot this film of industrial progress in these two fields.
