Muscat, February 9th 2013 – The Public Authority for Investment Promotion and Export Development (PAIPED) is finalizing preparations for the Sultanate’s debut participation at ‘Buildint Tanzania 2013’, an annual international building and construction trade show held in Dar Es-Salaam, 22nd - 24th February.
Nine small to medium-sized Omani enterprises (SMEs) will join exhibitors from more than 20 countries and meet with potential exporters, distributors and contractors from around the world to better understand and cater to their needs.
“Driven by continued global dependence on energy, and coupled with substantial needs in the region for world-class infrastructure and industry, the forecasted vast construction spend will create increasing demands on both project owners and contractors as they deliver these projects over the next five years,” said Rizwan Shah, Managing Director, Corporate Finance, and Leader of Deloitte’s Capital Projects Advisory services practice for the Middle East.
As outlined by Deloitte experts at the event, EPC projects in the GCC are forecasted to increase in size and complexity, and project owners are now enhancing their own capabilities to execute their rapidly growing and expensive portfolios in a capitally efficient manner. Contractors are likewise seeking ways to grow their businesses while safeguarding their interests from technical, commercial and legal perspectives, from initiation to close-out. Achieving all three perspectives will mandate new requirements of contractors that are entrusted to deliver these large capital projects.
Residential, Commercial and Hospitality sectors lead the GCC projects market with US$29.4bn, US$12.2bn and US$5.5bn worth of projects completed respectively in 2012
