ABSTRACT
The article reports on how Total Petrochemicals' early decision to invest in Qatar is paying dividends, with the state being a launch pad for Asia. Total took an early decision to invest in the Middle East, with a commitment to Qatar in the early 1970s. As a company, it focuses firmly on its competitors and, as such, it realizes that it needs to have global coverage. François Cornelis, vice president of Total, says: Total's Asian production is lower than its competitors.
