ASTAD participated in the ‘Kuwait Projects Forum’ to introduce their project management expertise to the Kuwaiti market. The forum was organised with the official support of Kuwait’s Ministry of Public Works and held from 20 to 21 November 2017 at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Kuwait City.

ASTAD Chief Executive Officer, Engineer Ali Al-Khalifa explained that this was the second Kuwait event that ASTAD was proud to support as it highlights the building and infrastructure efforts needed to accomplish Kuwait’s 2035 vision ‘New Kuwait’. He stated: “ASTAD’s operations outside of Qatar are underway and we are fully prepared to support the building and infrastructure developments that will support the fulfilment of Kuwait’s 2035 vision. We plan to utilize the experience, knowledge, and excellence that we have built in Qatar with over 250 projects across a diverse variety of sectors to support our international client’s needs.”

ASTAD International General Manager, Engineer Abdulaziz Al-Mulla delivered a presentation on best practices in project management at the forum, shedding light on the key principles ASTAD takes into account to ensure the successful delivery of projects, stating: “Understanding the local culture, using advanced technology and implementing a safety conscious culture all while ensuring sustainability and project legacy are some of the key principles we take into account at ASTAD.” Eng. Al-Mulla went on to discuss the key principle of incorporating a country’s national values into corporate philosophy, and how that commitment was key to ASTAD’s success in Qatar, stating: “Our success would not have been possible if it wasn’t for our commitment to the Qatar National Vision. This commitment enabled the successfully delivery of projects that are pivotal to Qatar’s diversification.”

The ‘Kuwait Projects Forum’ conference highlighted investment opportunities, project timelines and infrastructure development plans for realisation of a ‘New Kuwait’.
