The stage is set. The players are assembled. Big 5 opens its doors today in the midst of a city that will spend $138 billions on construction projects over the next six years. By 2010, Dubai's population will have trebled to over 3 million and the number of tourists visiting every year will top 15 million.
Incredible as it may seem, there is still no professional trade newspaper for the burgeoning construction industry in the UAE … until today!
Right now, you are reading the first edition of Construction Week, a newspaper created with one goal in mind: to help the UAE construction industry reap the rewards of this country's boom times.
As with all industrial sectors, money is the lubricant that keeps the gargantuan UAE construction industry moving. That's why we at Construction Week are so committed to helping you make more and more of it. We will bring you news of the latest tenders coming down the pipeline; we'll inform you about who is winning the big contracts so you know where the subcontracting opportunities lie; and —- just in case you are feeling undervalued — we will bring you pages and pages of job opportunities every week.
Above all, we'll be first to the construction news that affects you every day. This industry moves to fast to rely on information reaching you once a month; and the local industry is too vast for you to rely on reading imported international titles. The UAE is the fastest growing construction market in the world. We are all part of it, and we will all grow and together if we keep each other informed. Enjoy the first issue and see you inside the Big 5 show.
