“Across the region, contractors, consultants and suppliers alike are expecting a better year ahead due to improved oil prices and government reforms.
As headline sponsor of the MEED Projects Awards, Mashreq is very proud to support the construction sector’s key stakeholders in being recognised for quality and success in their projects. We congratulate all the finalists for delivering and contributing towards the growth and sustainability of the industry,” said Mohammad Khader al Shouli, Senior Vice President, Mashreq Bank.
