The Middle East accounts for a large portion of foreign investments in New York City, and more specifically in Manhattan with prime retail malls, commercial properties such as luxury hotels and premier residential condos in Midtown East and the Upper East Side. Qatar is ranking as the wealthiest country per capita in the world with Luxembourg and Singapore following in 2nd and 3rd position. Qatar is also heavily invested in higher education with a state of the heart Weill Cornell medical campus. Last August, Weill Cornell also unveiled its latest technological campus on Roosevelt Island in the heart of Manhattan with the Bloomberg Center and the Tata Center for Agriculture and Nutrition. The ties between New York and Qatar are beyond economic sustenance, there are strong educational and cultural exchanges that ultimately lead to a strong political and strategic alliance.
