World Cup to bring more travelers to Qatar 

According to a new report from the National Bank of Kuwait, the entire gulf region should experience an economic boost as a result of Qatar’s 2022 FIFA World Cup preparations.

The report argues that the host country’s massive construction projects will have a ripple effect throughout the entire region.  Planned improvements include a $25 billion rail and metro network, a $10 billion international airport, and a $4 billion causeway that will link Qatar with neighboring Bahrain.

The report says that these projects, along with a myriad of others, will bring in extra spending and give travelers increased motivation to visit the region both during and after the 2022 World Cup.
