Until the award of the 2022 World Cup, few people had heard of Qatar, now construction opportunities are abound.
With a population of just 2 million, a landmass the size of Wales and vast oil and gas reserves, the country has the highest per capita GDP in the world. This new found wealth has brought with it an appreciation that energy is finite, and as a result, the government has extensive development plans for the country and need help to achieve its vision:
“By 2030, Qatar aims to be an advanced society capable of sustaining its development and providing a high standard of living for all of its people. Qatar’s National Vision defines the long- term outcomes for the country and provides a framework within which national strategies and implementation plans can be developed.”
Qatar’s future is dependent on successfully establishing itself as a centre of excellence in areas such as education, medicine and sport. The investment in infrastructure has commenced (to the tune of $220 billion).
Unsurprisingly, British and international businesses are arriving in their droves to invest, build, advise and deliver construction projects.
Outside of the energy sector, the largest tenders to be found are in construction (hotels, stadiums, accommodation, offices, schools, universities and shopping malls), transport (highways, railways, port expansion, new airport) and utilities. Companies looking to capitalise on this growth need to review the opportunities that this exciting new market has to offer. Win That Bid opened its Doha offices in 2013 and is ready help you achieve this.
