Qatari development firms to promote green building
Qatar has significant contribution to make at MIPIM says Msheireb CEO
Development companies across Qatar are to join forces to emphasise the importance of sustainable development at this year’s MIPIM conference.
The Qatar Pavillion has been organised by Msheireb Properties, Qatari Diar and Lusail Real Estate Development Company and will also be home to the Qatar Urban Forum which aims to highlight issues surrounding sustainable urban development.
Eng. Mohammed bin Ali Al Hedfa, Group CEO of Qatari Diar, real estate arm of the Qatar Investment Authority, said: "The Qatar Urban Forum at MIPIM is an excellent opportunity to further raise Qatar’s profile in the global real estate market, and engage in the international debate on urban development."
The chosen theme for the Qatar Urban Forum will be Sustainable Architecture and Urban Development, which will provide a platform to examine and discuss methods for implementing sustainable development and urbanism.
Eng. Issa M. Al Mohannadi, CEO of Msheireb Properties, added: “Qatar Pavilion is one of the very first national pavilions to be staged at MIPIM, and we look forward to further awareness of brand Qatar on the real estate international platform.
"This year we aim to share the significant progress we have made over the past year with all those participating in MIPIM. Given the pioneering work we are currently undertaking in this field, we believe that we have a significant contribution to make in terms of sharing our knowledge and experience with the industry."
MPIM will take place from March 6-9, with the Qatar Pavilion being located at the main entrance of the Palais des Festivals.
