Qatar is set to become the first Gulf country to tap global bond markets since oil prices plummeted last month. In spite of a low-oil-price environment and COVID-19-related global economic slowdown, the country on Tuesday began marketing five- 10- and 30- year bonds, which it hopes will raise at least $5bn. The bond is expected to go on sale later today.
