Presently, increasing amounts of companies and job seekers are open to venturing to the Middle East, especially the oil rich state of Qatar, where vast opportunities await and the economic development is promising.
Blessed with vast natural gas resources, Qatar aspires to be the leading exporter of liquefied natural gas globally by 2012, and plans to plunge into massive development to the region to promote the economy to first class status by leveraging the gas profits. This is evident with the Doha construction site developing into a spectacular skyline, flooded with skyscrapers and breathtaking structures.
There are numerous companies that have set up shop in Qatar at the moment, and officials anticipate the numbers to grow. The capital city is an ongoing construction site, comprised of rapidly progressing infrastructure projects and others still on the drawing board which has already stimulated the economy by providing investment opportunities, employment and an abundance of resources to be maximized upon. Hiring is a major issue the companies need to resolve. They have endless development projects and work opportunities such as design, architecture, master planning, scaffolding and cladding among others, but still not enough dexterous expertise to execute the projects.
Qatar is seeking contractors and qualified individuals with the know–how and experience in designing and building road and rail network, industrial parks, land transportation systems, building airports and ports, environmental services and constructing the meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions industry.
