Astad supported the recently-concluded ‘Made in Qatar’ exhibition in Muscat as ‘official sponsor for project management’ during the four-day event.
This year’s edition of ‘Made in Qatar’ was held for the second time outside the country and successfully gathered a large number of leading Qatari companies and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
Astad CEO engineer Ali al-Khalifa said, “I would like to thank Qatar Chamber for arranging this expo, which will prove to support and further enhance Qatar and Oman’s business relations. As a brotherly nation, Oman is a key pillar to our international expansion and it is central for us to work collaboratively to deliver world-class projects with a focus on excellence.”
Astad showcased its portfolio of projects in Qatar, in addition to its recent penetration of the Omani market. Chief commercial officer and general manager of Astad International, engineer Abdulaziz al-Mulla, introduced the company to HE the Minister of Commerce and Industry Ali bin Ahmed al-Kuwari and Oman’s General Authority for Investment Promotion and Export Development president Yahia bin Saeed al-Jabri.
Reflecting on Astad’s participation in the event, al-Mulla said: “Over the last few years, we have been keen to enter the Omani market as part of our strategic international expansion. As of today, I am proud to say that our office in Oman has been established and we have already begun work on two major projects.”
Since Astad was established in Oman, it has partnered with various Oman entities and signed several agreements to promote bilateral co-operation.
