1 June 2011 No Comment

As part of a mission of the Portuguese Entrepeneurial Association AEP – Associação Empresarial de Portugal, Mota-Engil attended the International Construction Exhibition Project QATAR 2011, held between May 02 and 05 in Doha. Our delegation was composed of Paulo Nunes, from Mota-Engil Ambiente e Serviços (Environment and Services) and Rui Campos, from Mota-Engil Engenharia (Engineering), and has developed contacts that helped to identify the potential and better projects of this country. The Qatar is at the 17th position in the ranking published by the World Economic Forum and it is one of the fastest-growing economies in the Middle East over the last decade. The programme of construction projects is ambitious and intends to create an economy less reliant on oil and oil by-products. New urban areas, universities, industry, metropolitan railway, port, airport, communication routes and the realization of Football World Cup taking place in Qatar in 2022 are part of the future challenges of this emerging country.
