Middle East governments are facing escalating demand for electricity and water in the region, fuelled by booming populations, sustained industrial growth and rising urbanisation. On one hand, the region needs to invest US$150 billion in energy generation alone in order to satisfy demand in the coming decade. On the other, with growing water shortage increasingly affecting the economic and social development of most countries of the region, it is vital for the Middle East countries to forge ahead with heavy modernisation of their water production and distribution facilities.
Through a series of enlightening presentations and timely case studies, MEED Power and Water will discuss how these impediments to the region’s future economic and industrial can translate into significant investment opportunities for the private sector. Our panel composed of key government officials and leading business figures involved in the Middle East utility industry will debate the status of the reforms and will answer you questions on the market’s most challenging issues.
