International Contracting Conference and Exhibition to boost KSA’s contracting sector
Saudi Vice Minister of Commerce and Investment Majed bin Abdullah Al-Bawardi inaugurated the 1st International Contracting Conference and Exhibition (ICCE) in Riyadh on Sunday.
The two-day summit, hosted by the Saudi Contractors Authority (SCA), will steer the course for the future of Saudi Arabia’s contracting sector, with sustainability aligned with global industry best practices at the top of the agenda.
Being organized at the Riyadh International and Convention and Exhibition Center, the ICCE is formed under the guidance of the Saudi Vision 2030, with the localization and qualification of contracting in Saudi’s construction sector, along with project management, quality and safety among the key sessions under discussion over the next two days.
Al-Bawaradi said the steady increase of the size and number of exhibitors reflects the importance of the contracting sector in running local and global economies in general. The SCA is responsible for regulating the Kingdom’s contractor industry as well as the increasing mergers and acquisitions in the construction sector.
