GCC Powers of Construction 2014

Are you ready for the recovery?


This is the fifth publication in its series and the only one of its kind amongst the Financial Services Industry in the Middle East. The GCC Powers of Construction report is produced based on data gathered from surveys and internal data, supported by interviews with some of the most prominent industry leaders from the region.

This issue focuses on the positive sentiment in the construction industry and positive developments in awarding some mega and social infrastructure projects across key markets in the Middle East.
