Dubai Investments PJSC [DI], the leading investment company listed on the Dubai Financial Market, has reinforced its commitment to Qatar with a strong participation in Project Qatar 2014, and focused on promoting Qatar as an entrepreneurial hub for individuals and companies looking to invest in the real estate and construction industry in the region.

The exhibition, which will be held from May 12 to 15 at the Qatar National Convention Centre, will be organized under the patronage of His Excellency Sheikh Abdullah Bin Nasser Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, Qatar’s Prime Minister and Minister of Interior.

Seven DI subsidiaries, which are category leaders in their respective sectors, will be part of the high-profile exhibition. These include Emirates Glass, Emirates Insolaire, Dubai Cranes, Emirates Building Systems, Gulf Metal Craft, Gulf Dynamic Switchgear and Emirates Extrusions Factory.

Our subsidiary – Emirates Building Systems – has acquired more than 50 projects in the last few years, including the over US$6.5 million polysilicon plant project that is currently being executed by Qatar Solar Technologies.

We look forward to leveraging potential business opportunities in Qatar’s booming construction sector through our participation in the mega event.”

Al Serkal commended the activities associated with Project Qatar that reflect the country’s sustained efforts to achieve the goals of the Qatar National Vision 2030. He said Qatar’s rapid elevation as a key hub for world events has resulted in advancing the construction industry to fulfil demands for improved infrastructural, commercial, residential and industrial projects.
