During the early 20th century, much of Qatar’s economy depended on fishing and pearling, it wasn´t until the late 1930s, when oil was discovered and its economy boosted. Its is now one of the richest capital cities in the world, the nation as a whole produces over 800,000 barrels of oil daily.  #oil #barrels #persiangulf
