Qatar Development Bank joins Turkeybuild Istanbul 2019

Trade relations in the construction sector between Turkey and Qatar are becoming ever stronger, with 2018 seeing a rise of 129% in building materials exports from Turkey to Qatar.

This figure includes astounding statistics including a 9064% increase in exports of electricity, water and gas meters, a 6849% increase in cement exports, and a 911% increase in exports of bricks and tiles.
Qatar’s building sector is currently riding high as the country prepares for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, and much of the contracting work has been taken up by Turkish firms. While in 2017, Turkish firms carried out contracting work in Qatar worth $496 million, in 2018 that rose to $2 billion.
Qatar is also investing heavily into the Turkish economy, reaching $19 billion in 2018.
The Qatar Development Bank will be at Yapi Turkeybuild Istanbul this June at the Qatari Pavilion to present its opportunities alongside several products and materials including aluminium, steel, pipes and tubes, switchgears, electrical cables, LED lighting, fabricated wood and plastics.
We spoke to a representative of the Qatar Development Bank to find out more about what to expect from them at Turkeybuild Istanbul 2019.
