Arab World Eyes Brexit as Expansion Opportunity to West

8

Arab countries have cast greedy eyes on Britain, viewing the looming Brexit exit as a surefire path toward business growth in the country — and likely, more Muslim influence.

As if Europe wasn’t already suffering under a problematic outcome of the mostly Muslim refugee influx in recent times.

Now this, as the Express noted:

“The Qatar Investment Authority, the Gulf Arab state’s acquisitive sovereign wealth fund, is to invest in Britain after it leaves the European Union, its chief executive said. …

“Qatar is one of the most high-profile investors in London, owning landmarks such as the Shard, Harrods and the Olympic Village, as well as luxury hotels.

“It has also sought to diversify its UK investments beyond real estate, including buying stakes in retailer J Sainsbury Plc and Heathrow airport.

“‘I am still looking, even after Brexit there will be opportunities QIA can really hunt for,’ Sheikh Abdullah bin Mohammed bin Saud al-Thani told an investment conference in London.

“Asked what sectors in Britain he was particular looking at, he said: ‘Our aim now in the future is really to focus on infrastructure, and we will be focusing also on healthcare and IT.'”
