ASTAD Project Management launched ASTAD International at Cityscape Global 2015, marking its foray into markets outside of Qatar. 

At the exhibition currently underway in Dubai, UAE, Dr Abdullah al-Kubaisi, chairman of ASTAD Project Management said: “In the UAE, like Qatar, there are major investments in real estate and infrastructure.

"The 2020 Expo in Dubai, like the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, has unleashed a wave of opportunity for experienced, quality-driven project management firms.”

Commenting on the launch, Ali Bin Nasser Al-Khalifa, chief executive officer of ASTAD Project Management, remarked: “This is an exciting opportunity to work together across borders. 

"We will share knowledge in an effort to develop regional home-grown solutions and strengthen the region’s booming construction industry.

“We understand this region, its people, how they think, their preferences, needs, and ambitions," Al Khalifa said. 

"This goes a long way in building trust and appreciating a client’s requirements and this faculty has been instrumental in ASTAD’s success and growth.”

ASTAD International is planning to open branches across the world including Saudi Arabia, Oman, Egypt, and the United Kingdom, Gulf Times reported.
