Qatar Projects 2015 Highlights

Detailing the plan to deliver Qatar's National Vision 2030 - a $200bn project

Under the patronage of H.E. Sheikh Ahmed bin Jassim Al Thani, Minister of Economy and Commerce and endorsed by the Ministry of Economy and Commerce in Qatar, MEED’s Qatar Projects Conference will be celebrating its 13th instalment on 15&16 March 2016 in Doha.

While the initial hype around projects associated with the execution of the World Cup has reduced over time, Qatar remains in the top 3 projects markets in the Middle East and is less reliant on an uncertain oil price. MEED customers are citing high interest, high potential and anticipating robust growth in infrastructure and construction as the World Cup and Qatar National Vision 2030 deadline approach. Most recently, Qatar’s Ministry of Economy and Commerce received bids for advisory services on the development of a public-private partnership (PPP) regulatory framework and policy. Qatar already uses PPP structures in its power and water sectors but has yet to expand the model into other industries, opting instead to use government funds for infrastructure projects.

Major project opportunities and awards are on the horizon for companies looking to win work in Qatar including:

  • The Qatar Integrated Rail Programme has a budget of US $35bn and includes a national passenger and freight railway, the Doha metro and a light rail network in Lusail.
  • The new Hamad International Airport required more than US $15bn  and an expansion plan that will take the passenger capacity from the current 20 million to 53 million a year; requiring investment of nearly US$8bn, according to estimates by regional projects tracker
