Qatar Inflation to Rise

In what is bad news for, well, everyone, Qatar inflation is set to rise still further, the Peninsula reported today. The news followed on from an earlier report this week that inflation this year would reach 16-17% from almost 14% last year. Inflation has been hurting everyone, recently, and while even the better off expatriates among have been feeling the pinch those on low wages - of whom there are many in Qatar - are really struggling. Like many in Qatar, we are weighing up our options, and if there is no pay rise soon next year may well be our last!
