Qatar is located in the Persian Gulf and has a population of 2.5 million people.
The nation is a unitary absolute monarchy.
The official language of Qatar is Arabic.
The majority of citizens follow Islam.
The currency of Qatar is the riyal.
Qatar expects conservative clothing choices, in particular in a business setting. Modesty is the rule. Women should cover knees and elbows while men should choose long-sleeved shirts and loose-fitting trousers. Dress in a private home may be somewhat less restrictive depending upon the individual, but it’s best not to presume before a visit.
Don’t point or show the soles of your shoes. Both are considered to be examples of rude behavior.
Alcohol may be available in your hotel, but Muslims don’t partake. Consider choosing tea, juice, water, or any non-alcoholic beverage when you are socializing with locals.
Our large, non-profit educational group for marketing executives looked for someone knowledgeable on the topic of business etiquette and one name kept rising to the top, Cynthia Lett. Her talk was amazing. Since we were limited by time, she focused on the critical aspects of business interactions. Cynthia is a tremendous resource for any company or organization looking for a protocol course.
