  • 2 months   ago

As part of its efforts to support the local product through its projects, the Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ announced that it will hold “Supporting Local Manufacturers Forum” in September, with the participation of Ashghal’s international and local contractors implementing various projects, in addition to the qualified local factories. The forum will provide an important opportunity to the new and the qualified Qatari factories to learn about the new Ashghal projects and the needed materials.

The forum aims to encourage Qatari manufacturers and allow them to participate effectively in projects implemented by the Public Works Authority, including roads and infrastructure development projects, as well as building projects, drainage projects, expressway projects, and beautification projects. The forum also aims to encourage Qatari investors to establish new local factories, as part of the country’s efforts to increase reliance on national expertise.




The forum will provide an overview on Ashghal’s initiatives in the field of supporting local products and Qatari manufacturers, as well as a comprehensive overview of the locally manufactured materials that will be relied on to implement a number of new Ashghal projects in the coming years, and the quantities required to be supplied from these materials, including road and lighting poles, drainage pipes, manholes, bitumen, directional signs and other materials.
