Several key infrastructure projects are forging ahead, partly in support of Expo 2020 (the first to be held in the Middle East region), but also more widely driven by the ongoing expansion of trade and transport links.

Overall, the number of construction projects awarded in 2017 Q1 was up 26% compared to Q1 2016.

The government is prioritizing infrastructure investment, spending $116 Billion from 2015-2020 on better transport links, utility capacity, and housing, among other priority areas.
