Spotlight on Kuwait mega projects
Kuwait City, October 2, 2011
Latest developments in Kuwait’s mega projects sector will come under spotlight at a major conference later this month.
The Kuwait Energy and Infrastructure Projects 2011, being organised by Meed from October 31 to November 3, will address the key issues in delivering the successful implementation of the national plan, a statement said.
Keynote speakers addressing the conference include Farouk Al Zanki, CEO, Kuwait Petroleum Corporation; Shaikha Al Bahar, CEO, National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) and Dr Hashem Al Tabtabaei, technical team leader at Partnership Technical Bureau.
The conference will be held at the Kuwait Marriott Courtyard.
The content has been especially extended, with two days devoted to the energy sector and one day solely dedicated to the infrastructure and construction sector, the statement said.
Meed Projects data reveals that 29 per cent of current planned projects are in the construction sector, 25 per cent in infrastructure, 25 per cent in oil and gas production, 19 per cent in power projects, and the remaining 4 per cent in waste and water projects.
Major projects under discussion at the conference include world scale Clean Fuels project and the vast array of projects being developed in the social and transport infrastructure sectors.
Edmund O'Sullivan, chairman, Meed Events, said: “The project market in Kuwait is gaining momentum with new opportunities arising. The conference will engage all the key Kuwaiti government and private sector stakeholders involved with delivering the nation’s long term vision. At this event we will highlight the critical role that Kuwait will be playing in shaping the future of the region and the global economy.”
“This event is the perfect platform to meet key decision makers who can significantly influence future profitability, to explore the opportunities in Kuwait and also to expand and fast track commercial success,” added O’Sullivan. – TradeArabia News Service
