Construction Week's Leaders Kuwait 2018 summit opens
Speakers from Kuwait's Supreme Council for Planning and Development and CSCEC ME are at today's summit
Construction Week’s Leaders in Construction Summit Kuwait 2018 is under way at the Radisson Blu Kuwait City hotel. With the launch of the latest Kuwait National Development Plan, branded as ‘New Kuwait’ – a vision to transform the economy by 2035 – new master planned developments and cities are once again being put forth in the country.
It is to discuss these opportunities that Construction Week has assembled the country’s top construction influencers at the Kuwait summit’s second iteration.
Speakers at today’s summit include Talal Al-Shammari, assistant secretary general at Kuwait’s Supreme Council for Planning and Development; Yang Chunsen, vice president of China State Construction Engineering Corporation Middle East (CSCEC ME); Ahmad Jamal Jafar, vice chairman of Kuwait Bruckner Construction Contracting; and Nabil Kobrosly, vice president of business development at Parsons’ built environment division.
On the agenda are topics such as the post-oil era and how it will impact construction; Kuwait’s renewed focus on infrastructure projects, such as roads, bridges, rail, and airports; and dispute and conflict resolution in the country’s construction sector.
