The Qatari shipping sector continues to be dominated by the export of the country's key commodity, natural gas, through the export terminal of Ras Laffan. Much of this is carried by national carrier Qatar Gas Transport (Nakilat). However, the country is also looking to increase its container and dry bulk shipping presence, through the development of the New Doha Port, which is being developed with an eye to capturing some lucrative transhipment trade. Furthermore, Qatar is making its presence felt in foreign ports sectors and is investing in developing facilities in Egypt.
