Construction experts to meet in Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi, December 23, 2013
Construction machinery and equipment experts will be in Abu Dhabi next month for a major event where they will discuss the future of the industry in the region.
The three-day Intermat Middle East, organised by Comexposium and Clarion Events Middle East, will run at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre from January 14.
Diego Bertati, service and field manager, Gulf, CIFA, a leading construction and equipment machinery company, said: “In Saudi Arabia, we know there are very big projects to build new cities. For the UAE we think that, after the boom in 2007-2008, we should see a stable market for the coming years especially with the upcoming Expo2020 in Dubai.”
He pointed out that Oman was a very interesting market for construction, even more than Qatar.
"In terms of sectors, surely big infrastructure projects and underground works are the ones that show most growth potential at present,” he noted.
“We think that currently, Lebanon and Syria are difficult markets to approach because of the political situation. For other Middle Eastern countries it is very important to have the right partners for distribution otherwise it gets difficult to enter the market,” he added.
CIFA will showcase its truck pump model K38L acquired by the customer ‘New Mix.’
Describing the model and its features in details, Bertati, said: “The K38L truck mounted concrete pump is the choice for small and medium sites. With a four-sections-boom it combines ease of use with a compact truck layout. The pump can be equipped both with an open loop and closed loop pumping unit to reach the highest performances.”
York Liang, president, Liu Gong Machinery Middle East, said: “With the rebuilding project for Iraq in development and the World Cup in to be held in Qatar, we see Iraq and Qatar as the two major countries in the Middle East that would show growth in terms of construction.”
The Chinese group will showcase a number of products such as wheel loader, excavators, roller, backhoe loader and mobile crane, besides new launches. - TradeArabia News Service
