Aramco hosts contractors’ meet

June 2018

Saudi Aramco last month hosted the 2018 Contractors’ Exchange Conference under the theme “Deploying Technology for Effective Project Execution”.

It was attended by more than 400 project management professionals and executives from local and regional contracting companies. The event was aimed at strengthening the company’s partnerships with construction contractors and create a platform to enhance communication between technology providers to meet the challenges faced by the industry.

Key speakers from Saudi Aramco and the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) industry shared their views and experiences on the theme of technology and the positive impact on project execution. The event included presentations, panel discussions, and an exhibition by several technology providers. 

Speaking at the plenary session, Motaz Al Mashouk, the general manager for project management at Saudi Aramco, said the Contractor Exchange forum, which focused on emerging technologies in project and construction execution, presents an opportunity for the local industry to rapidly advance its competitiveness and capabilities and thus help transform the in-Kingdom construction industry.

“Saudi Aramco’s strategy to support the construction sector is not only intended to meet the needs of the company’s business at present and in the future, but also reflects its keenness to embody the concept of citizenship in fulfillment of Vision 2030,” he added.
