Southeast Asia construction surges forward, as investments and overall confidence in the region remains strong. Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines show strong growth as well as steady potential for future growth.

In the Middle East, total of Dh10.8 billion (USD 2.9 billion) worth of construction contracts for Expo 2020 Dubai will be awarded by the end of 2017. Sectors to offer procurement opportunities next year include design, logistics, health and safety, construction and construction materials.
