Qatar has been actively working to diversify its economy beyond oil and gas and a focal area at ConteQ Expo 2024 will be technology, which has been identified as a key sector for diversification. New technologies are revolutionizing traditional industry sectors and the world of work, as well as how organizations function. A good example is Qatar Free Zone, who are focusing their development efforts to attract and build clusters in emerging technologies ranging from artificial intelligence, robotics, drones, automotive technologies, cybersecurity, 3D printing, Blockchain, virtual reality, the Internet of Things (IoT), data analytics and computing power. With ICT spending in Qatar set to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.2% to reach $9 billion by 2024, growth will be moved by the development of large-scale, infrastructure-driven projects [1].


These infrastructure projects are driven by Qatar’s construction market that is witnessing significant growth, forecasted to reach $89.27 billion by 2028, with an expected growth compound annual growth rate of 9.13% [2]. This is supported by the Qatari government investment in projects like the 2050 Transport Plan, which includes 22 new projects worth $2.7 billion.

Further infrastructure investment has recently been announced with 14 new schools that will be designed, built and maintained in various parts of Qatar through a Public Private Partnership (PPP) providing high-quality education to more than 10,000 students. Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ and Urbacon Trading and Contracting Company (UCC) signed to construct the schools as part of the second package of the Qatar Schools Development Program within the PPP, in cooperation with the Ministry of Commerce and Industry and the Ministry of Education and Higher Education.


This step comes in line with the Third National Development Strategy 2030-2024, the final phase of Qatar National Vision 2030, which aims to increase the participation of the private sector in the various economic fields of the country and enable it to play a key role in achieving goals and long-term outcomes. Ashghal had overseen the construction of the first package of eight schools through PPPs, as part of Qatar's commitment to enable the private sector to play a key role in achieving long-term goals and outcomes, particularly through the utilization of PPPs as a means of infrastructure development and service provision.


As a pivotal platform on the nation’s exciting journey towards Qatar National Vision 2030, this ground-breaking exhibition will redefine technological standards in construction and services, and reflects the dynamic strides taken by Public Works Authority towards showcasing technological advancements in construction and services. Furthermore, the conference will feature over 60 industry experts as speakers discussing important topics relating to three main pillars including; ‘Pillar 1: Innovative Build Tech’; ‘Pillar 2 Services Accelerators’; and, ‘Pillar 3: Policy Pathfinders’.
