Focus on key Qatar projects
Doha, February 14, 2013
Qatar Projects 2013, the biggest gathering of stakeholders, owners, contractors in Qatar’s project sector, will present a comprehensive update on the country’s critical project and infrastructure requirements from February 17-20 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Doha.
Held under the patronage of Dr Mohammed bin Saleh Al-Sada, Minister of Energy and Industry and chairman & managing director of Qatar Petroleum, and supported by Qatar Chamber and the Public Works Authority (Ashghal), Qatar Projects 2013 is packed with presentations and panel discussions that will provide valuable information to contractors and developers keen to take a slice of the $60 billion projects market in Qatar, said a statement.
Equally important, conference participants will be able to gain insights from experts on how to minimise project risks and survive Qatar’s current project market.
“Managing risks is just as critical to the success of any contractor or developer as winning a contract. We have valuable information and insights from experts to help project stakeholders to identify, prioritise and manage risks; as well as minimise costs for construction projects and insurance strategies that they can implement at the highest risk period of a project,” said Edmund O’ Sullivan, chairman, MEED Events, organisers of Qatar Projects 2013.
At a scheduled contractor roundtable on the second day of the conference, discussions will focus on the survival techniques for small to mid-size developments and opportunities in the short term, enabling contractors to navigate the shifting resource challenges in the construction industry and to address concerns over execution capacity of the market, especially in regard to manpower and materials.
A special presentation from World Bank will highlight PPP development and opportunities, as well as the viability and growth of the project financing market. – TradeArabia News Service
