QPM signs deal with Morocco tourism agency
Dubai, October 9, 2013
QPM, one of the region’s premier project management companies and the first Qatari firm in the field, has signed a collaboration agreement with the Moroccan Agency for Tourism Development (SMIT) to provide a turnkey solution for investors in tourism based projects in Morocco.
The agreement between QPM and SMIT was formally signed at the Cityscape Global 2013, currently under way in Dubai.
Ahmad Al Abdulla, chairman of QPM, and Imad Barrakad, chairman of SMIT, signed the agreement in the presence of other officials from both companies as well as members of the media.
Under the terms of the agreement, SMIT and QPM will provide development management, tourist investment advisory, project management, construction management and consultancy services on tourism related projects.
“Since the inception of the company, QPM had its sights set on becoming a major regional player in the field of project management and development,” said Al Abdulla. “Having successfully established an excellent track record and reputation in the industry, QPM has already become the most sought after provider of a wide range of expertise related to project management in our home country of Qatar.
“In recent years, after having established offices in Saudi Arabia, Morocco, and Egypt, our services have also been engaged in several key projects in Yemen, Egypt, Sudan and Libya,” Al Abdulla continued. “With the construction boom currently back in full swing in the UAE, across the GCC and in nearby countries, QPM is more than capable and prepared to offer its services to investors and developers,” he said.
Barrakad said: “SMIT is committed to develop and implement innovative concepts to produce the best results and to meet the expectations of its partners.
“ Today, Morocco is striving to make tourism one of its main engines for the country’s economic development and SMIT has risen as an initiator of innovative projects and a major player in the engineering and tourism development fields that is able to ensure investors support throughout projects life cycles,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
