Qatar's tourism sector is likely to see a near-70 percent growth in hotels, the largest in the Middle East and Africa, latest STR Global data has showed. The Middle East/Africa hotel development pipeline for January comprised a total of 495 hotels totalling 131,981 rooms, according to STR Global's construction pipeline report. Among the countries in the region, Qatar reported the largest expected growth (up 69.9 percent) if all 7,340 rooms in the country’s total active pipeline open. The Gulf state is looking to dramatically expand its tourism offering as it starts to look ahead to hosting the World Cup in 2022. Business. com
