Qatar is attempting to woo Britain's financial community by presenting itself as the "Wall Street of the Middle East" as it runs roadshows across the UK this month.
The move comes as part of the resource-rich Gulf state's drive to improve its global image ahead of its hosting of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
"The UK is top of the chart for Qatar," said the Qatar Financial Centre's (QFC) business development head Sadiq Hamour in London last week.
The QFC, a government institution established in 2005, will end its first week of UK roadshows on Tuesday in Scotland as it tries to reach out to British banks and financial services institutions.
This follows previous tours in London and Manchester earlier this month, where the QFC pitched Qatar's "compelling tax regime" and "transparent legal and regulatory environment".
Like oil giant and fellow GCC member Saudi Arabia, Qatar is attempting to diversify its economy away from reliance on the oil and gas markets, which have suffered in recent times from price drops. As part of this, Qatar has started establishing the Msheireb Downtown Doha - a financial hub touted as akin to New York's Wall Street.
