As of 2007:

Generating additional jobs

The Social Impact Assessment estimate​d that Qatalums development will generate approximately USD 200 million in expenditure on construction materials and services in the Qatari economy, which should later account for over 2,00​0 jobs in addition to the number of on-site construction workers during construction.

Stimulus to the Qatari economy

The planned development of Qatalum was welcomed locally. Its presence offers increased opportunities for commercial expansion. Besides a growth in service provision to offices and factories, the ongoing development is leading to a greater number of shops, restaurants, coffee houses, hotels, hostels, and tourism in general.
