Due to its strategic importance, Qatar Steel took part in the 11th International Construction Technology & Building Materials Exhibition “Project Qatar”, held under the auspices of Prime Minister and Interior Minister, HE Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani, from 12th – 15th May, 2014 at Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC).
Project Qatar attracted about 2100 local and international exhibitors from 47 countries from all over the world, who showcased their expertise, products and services in the constructions sector. The exhibition is one of Middle East’s leading exhibitions for construction and building materials.
Mr. Ali Bin Hasan Al-Muraikhi, Qatar Steel’s Managing Director and General Manager said that Qatar Project is a good opportunity for construction and building companies to meet, communicate and further consolidate their business relations. The exhibition provided investment opportunities for participants, and offered comprehensive and suitable solutions to many problems and topics related to this important sector.
Mr. Al-Muraikhi pointed out that Qatar Steel, as a national steel producer, is keen to participate in Project Qatar 2014, due to the role the steel sector plays in the economic development in the State of Qatar, which witnesses a high percentage of growth in building and constructions as commercial, residential and industrial infrastructure developments in Qatar increase, in preparation for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, and in line with 2030 Qatar National Vision.
“Qatar Steel is constantly striving to achieve growth, expansion and development, and through its participation in Project Qatar it aims at enhancing its leading position in local and Gulf markets. Taking part in such an event allows us to network effectively, have direct contact with our traders and customers in the Middle East, GCC countries, with a view to build up continual and successful business relations and partnerships with them.” Mr. Al-Muraikhi added.
