Project finance demand up
This year, contracts worth $159 billion are to be awarded across the Middle East. Project finance loans are expected to grow almost 15% this year. It is expected that the area of project finance will grow from about $35 billion in 2012 to about $40 billion due to the increase in significance of infrastructure demand. On February 17-20 the Qatar Projects 2013 conference will be held in Doha, organized by Meed Events. The key part of the event will be a comprehensive review of contract financing opportunities and challenges in Qatar.
