Saudi Aramco participates in inaugural Construction Industry Institute conference in Dharhan
Amin H. Nasser, Saudi Aramco’s president and chief executive officer, delivered an address at the conference and spoke about the role the construction industry plays in transforming Saudi Arabia.
"The Kingdom’s development programs over the last 40 years would not have been achieved had it not been for the important role of the construction industry.” Nasser said. “As we look forward to the realization of Vision 2030, with its ambitious aspirations and massive investments, it has become more imperative than ever for the construction industry to swiftly advance in order to fulfill the hopes we pin on it.”
The two-day conference involved sharing experiences and ideas related to the construction industry. Saudi Aramco utilized the conference to share its innovative ideas. Nasser said efficiency and productivity, project cost and schedule overruns and quality are the key pillars the industry needs to focus on.
“We need to work together with the construction industry to maximize local content and overcome the challenges of quality, cost and stalled projects,” Nasser said.
