(MENAFN- The Peninsula) The Peninsula

Doha, Qatar: Qatar's construction market is growing and the country is an international global hub for events be it sports, cultural, fashion or construction.

Project Qatar which will be held from May 29 to June 1, presents several opportunities for local and foreign contractors to expand across Qatar. The 19th edition of the exhibition will address the future of the construction sector in Qatar by highlighting technological innovations that play an important role in the future within the 'Smart Cities' pavilion, which includes a number of advanced technology providers with multiple uses in construction projects.

Speaking to The Peninsula, Haidar Mshaimesh, General Manager of IFP Qatar (which is part of IFP Group, the Middle East's leading events organiser of trade fair and conferences) said that Project Qatar this year has an important significance. After the World Cup, the momentum is still present in the construction sector but there are different priorities.

“I think most of the projects will be more relevant to the Qatar National Vision 2030 in the healthcare sector (for example mega Hamad medical facility that is going to be built). There is priority for the education sector as a huge number of school projects are lined up and infrastructure will always be major point of interest for development. So, infrastructure around social and healthcare projects will be at the forefront,” he said.

Secondly, there is economic global crisis, recession, inflation in Europe, however the GCC regions market - Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE are still performing well compared to rest of the world and“I think the exhibition also provides a sign of healthy performing economy in Qatar and the region.”

The official said,“We have around 125 Qatari companies and a little bit less than 200 companies and a total of 325 companies form 25 countries. Speaking about the exceptions regarding the turnout of visitors, Mshaimesh noted that traditionally“we attract around 15,000 visitors over four days. So, we do not expect less than that and we also expect international turnout from the visiting delegations.”

Responding to a query regarding the largest pavilion, he noted that the major foreign country participating this year is Kuwait which is returning to Qatar after the pandemic.“We have official national pavilion for Kuwait, China, Turkey, Iran, Italy and wide individual participation from all over the world.

Also speaking to The Peninsula, Muna Al Bader, Vice President of Corporate Communications at Milaha said,“We are participating as a silver sponsor for this edition of Project Qatar, and this is our sixth participation. We are the distributors of Hino trucks which is a Japanese brand and will offer trucks during the exhibition. Also, we are dealers for many other oil and other products that are related to the equipment field.”

“Project Qatar is an attractive platform for all the companies inside and outside Qatar, especially it is attracting a lot of international brands under one umbrella. It is an opportunity for Qatari businessmen for Qatari market to check out the latest technologies and equipment that are used in the technical equipment field,” Al Bader added.
