At a time when Saudi Arabia continues to pump out oil as demand falls and inventories rise, it has now turned to the capital markets to help prop up budget spend as export revenues and reserves fall. Saudi Arabia has tapped the capital markets twice in the last six weeks: the first involved some SAR15bn ($4bn) in seven and ten year bonds; followed by a SAR20bn issue.

The roll out of the Kuwait’s five year development plan (2015-2020) looks to have been revitalised in the summer after something of a hiatus in the first half of the year.

In recent weeks a new refinery project and an extension to Kuwait City’s airport were signed, in deals worth a combined KWD5.2bn (approximately $17.3bn). As of the beginning of August, the country looks to be generating some KWD71bn (around $234bn) of capital goods projects over the coming half decade.

Now Qatar has to make some tough choices as aggressive and rising producers such as Australia, the United States have thrown down a competitive gauntlet. Qatar’s once cosy world is not cosy anymore. Can it rise to the challenges it will inevitably face over the coming decade?
