UK construction firms to win work in Iraq?
Several of the UK’s big construction companies have offices in the Middle East in countries such as Dubai, and now several big construction contracts could tempt UK construction firms to bid for work in Iraq.
A new report by Research & Markets has found that substantial opportunities exist in Iraq as the country rebuilds its infrastructure following the Iraq war.
Building News write that the Iraq Infrastructure Report 2011, found that infrastructure is a priority investment for the Iraqi government, and several big contracts, including one for a new international airport and a port, are available and waiting to be snapped up by UK contractors.
The report also mentions the need for electricity in Iraq, as facilities need improving, which could lead to more work for UK electricians. Two million new homes are also set to be built in Iraq over the next four years, which will create more jobs if UK contractors can be successful and win these contracts.
