The largest share of new demand in Qatar’s office space rentals for the second and third quarter of 2009 has come from the engineering and construction sector, according to a study published by DTZ Qatar.

Qatar-based The Peninsula daily reported that according to a study titled Property Times – Qatar, the construction and real estate sector of Qatar remains strong despite the global economic crisis.

Edward Brookes, director of DTZ Qatar, said Qatar's economy remains stable and has been relatively unaffected by the economic crisis that has impacted other countries.
