“Project Iraq 2012” expected to lay solid foundations for the region’s bustling construction sector
For the fifth consecutive year, “Project Iraq” – the International Exhibition for Construction and Environmental Technology, Materials and Equipment – will be held at Erbil International Fair Ground (EIF), bringing together local, regional and international companies and decision-makers in the construction sector.
Organized by IFP Iraq – member of International Fairs & Promotions (IFP) Group, Project Iraq is the largest specialized exhibition in Iraq and one of the fastest growing shows in the entire Middle East. In last year’s edition, the show brought together 393 local, regional and international companies from 20 countries, scoring a 30% growth in the number of participants.
Project Iraq’s ongoing success is widely influenced by the country’s dynamic construction market which is fueled by reconstruction and development projects across all economic sectors, including infrastructure, housing, hospitality, education and others. In 2010, Iraq’s construction industry was valued at US$ 5.6 billion with an annual growth forecast of 6.18% until 2014. Today, the busy pipeline of current and underway projects is triggering a massive demand in terms of building material, technology, and qualified human resources.
