Do you still have plans of expanding your operations in the Middle East?

Our strategy is to be in all of the GCC and Middle East countries. We are also looking to work closely with the biggest consultants and contractors that operate in such countries.

We are working on several projects in the UAE, including the Burj Alhilal, and in Oman.
