CIOB signs MoUs with Middle East construction bodies
The CIOB’s president, Chris Soffe, has signed two memorandums of understanding with construction organisations in the Middle East.
On a trip to Doha in Qatar in April, he signed MoUs with the Qatar Green Building Council and the Public Works Authority (Ashghal).
The agreements are intended to establish “mutual cooperation and sharing of expertise” in education and training and recognition of professional management in construction and projects for the benefit of industry, clients and society. They will also support collaboration on joint initiatives.
Soffe signed the Public Works Authority MoU with Mohammed Masoud Al Marri (right), infrastructure affairs director, on behalf of Ashghal president Saad bin Ahmad Al Mohannadi. Also present was Ajay Sharma, British ambassador to the State of Qatar. The QGBC MoU was signed with QGBC director Meshal Al Shamari.
