The objective of the conference is to shed light on the large number of projects planned in Qatar and the resulting business opportunities for investors and contractors. Qatar’s strong economic growth, resulting from capitalising on its abundant oil and gas reserves, has provided the government with a solid foundation to invest in the country’s infrastructure and diversify its economy.

This two-day event will gather senior officials and business people in Qatar and their global counterparts to explore these ambitious construction plans across a broad range of sectors. The event will provide status reports on the project achievements to date and future opportunities in the oil and gas arena as well as a wide variety of non-energy sectors. The appointment of Qatar to host the Asian Games in 2006, the first time they will be held in the Arab world, embodies the dramatic growth prospects in the most dynamic economy of the Middle East region.

This conference will be of interest to all those seeking information on the new project opportunities in the major sectors of Qatar’s booming economy. Chief executives, senior business development directors, vice-presidents and consultants involved in the construction industry will find this conference invaluable.
