PASMA Middle East Conference 2018- Core Agenda

The 2018 conference which was open to PASMA members and non- members alike addressed three key issues, as follows:

  •         The value of getting it right
  •         Standardization – does it support or suppress innovation?
  •         Changing attitudes for the better

Moreover, the conference  covered a wide range of topics including, “key facts and points to consider when selecting work at height equipment” ,“A clear and constructive approach to investigations” to ensure we continue to learn from incidents, “the legal perspective of an accident” and “education and personal choices when Working Safely at Height”.

PASMA Middle East Conference to boost UAE & Dubai Construction Industry

The UAE’s construction industry is expected to witness strong growth in the coming years. The U.A.E. is set to see a significant increase in the number of projects during 2018. Most of these projects are being developed to meet the anticipated rush of visitors during Dubai’s Expo 2020.

Optimism towards the UAE’s construction sector saw an increase over the last years, despite lower oil pricing in the GCC region and weaker global economic growth. Improved market sentiment in the UAE’s construction sector makes the Emirates the number one market in the region expected to deliver growth in 2018.

On the other hand, the U.A.E is the easiest GCC country to do business followed by Oman which holds the second rank. Dubai, in particular, is considered to be the emirate that has the most strategic geographical location to resolve regional conflicts.

It follows that the Emirates will provide significant investment opportunities for existing and new players to capitalize from the dynamics of the UAE’s construction industry.
