2019 Chief Guest and Speaker
Eng. Thabet Mubarek Al-Sawyeed, Governor, Saudi Contractors Authority
The rapid growth of the Saudi population and urbanization are driving the urban construction sector and are raising the need for high-rise buildings across several cities in the Kingdom. As an effort to diversify Saudi Arabia’s economy and to achieve some of the Vision 2030 goals, Saudi aims to grow the real estate sector’s contribution to GDP from 5 percent to 10 percent by 2030. The value of awarded contracts in Saudi Arabia's construction sector in 2019 will amount to $44.1 billion.
Furthermore, the Saudi Contractors Authority was formed recently to regulate the kingdom’s contractor industry and to increase mergers and acquisitions in a market. New opportunities for service providers are created as some of the key projects are rekindled by repurposing and fast-tracking to meet the community requirements. The Kingdom currently has over 75 active high-rise, tall & megatall buildings and skyscrapers under various phases of construction.
