Volvo Construction Equipment’s EMEA sales president, Tomas Kuta, expects sustained growth in Qatar, despite uncertainty over the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

In comments made to Construction Week on the sidelines of Volvo CE’s Volvo Days programme in Sweden, Kuta said that he was not concerned over the possibility of Qatar having its hosting rights taken away.

“The 2022 FIFA World Cup is one of the drivers [in Qatar],” he explained. “[However], we’d been expecting growth in the country for years because the fundamentals are in place.

“It might be a UAE-like growth pattern, but growth will certainly continue for a long time [in Qatar],” Kuta concluded.
