We managed to grow by 30% vs. 2014. In the GCC, we are strategically positioned to respond to local demands. We see growth opportunities in the construction of infrastructures, schools, hospitals, and affordable housing, in addition to the growing regional hospitality industry.
In 2016, we will focus on strengthening our market presence in KSA, Kuwait and Oman by enhancing our existing sales channels and by reinforcing the ties we already have with the major regional players.
