Notes

 
Qatar operates free zones and bonded warehouses in its territory. A private actor in the logitics business was found to promote fine art storage services, without an explicit link to bonded or free zone storage. Otherwise, no public or private actor appeard as promoting such preferential regimes for high value asset storage.
