Qatar, one of the richest Arab states in the world, is located in southwestern Asia. The country, which has a peninsula-shaped geographical structure, extends along the Persian Gulf, and the summers are very dry and the average temperature data of June-July-August is 47 degrees. When Qatar gained its independence in 1971, the country owned nothing but a barren land. The oil deposits under this country, which lacked long and empty plants whenever possible, became the most important factor that changed the fate of the country. Before oil, pearl diving and fishing were the main livelihoods in Qatar. Qatar’s per capita income is around 90,000 Euros, which makes it the richest country in the world in terms of per capita income. A once Ottoman land, Qatar later came under British mandate. Qatar’s largest and most developed city is Doha. This city is also the capital of the country. The population of Qatar is around 2.2 million and more than half of this population is immigrants. Qataris are private citizens, and on average, 4 out of every 5 Qatar citizens are either shareholders of the oil field or part of the oil field. There is almost no production in the country. Apart from oil, construction and service sectors have an important place in the country. Most of the workers in the service sector are Asian immigrants. Asian immigrants work for very low wages, yet the number of people who want to work as workers increases every day. Qatar citizens are completely exempt from taxes, electricity, water and gas fees, but foreign nationals do not have any privileges in this regard. Qatari citizenship is a great privilege for those living in Qatar, but it is not possible for immigrants to acquire citizenship without marrying a Qatari citizen, as Qatari citizenship can only be acquired by pedigree. has the idea to invest. However, this is required under the laws of Qatar for these people to find at least one Qatari partner. Qatar is also the country that will organize the 2022 World Cup. However, it is still a mystery whether this organization will be held in the summer or not. Qatari officials have declared that if the organization is given them, they will install huge air conditioners in the stadiums and the in-field temperature will be around 25-27 degrees. The construction of the stadiums has started, but it has been a striking issue that air conditioners are not included in any project. This promise has still not been fulfilled. Therefore, it has come to the fore to organize the tournament in November-December. However, European clubs have taken a stand against this.
