At this special time of the year, I would like to send seasonal and festive greetings to all our valuable clients on behalf of FIDIC and its staff. I hope that you take the opportunity to take a rest over the next two weeks and spend time with friends and family.
The final quarter of 2018 has been a very busy one for FIDIC, with a number of events and developments that will help to strengthen our organisation as we look ahead to an exciting year in 2019. We have, as ever, been active on the global stage.
More and more people are purchasing the second edition of our FIDIC contracts launched in 2017 and our recent FIDIC Contract Users’ Conferences in Johannesburg and London were well attended and gave us much useful feedback that our newly strengthened contracts committee will put to good use in the months ahead. Also, FIDIC has continued expanding its training offer all over the world, as well as providing more online training opportunities for those that are not able to travel to attend courses.
The staff team here is also hard at work planning our 2019 key events. These include our flagship annual FIDIC global infrastructure conference in Mexico, which we hope you will attend, and five contract users’ conferences around the world. All of these events give FIDIC a valuable opportunity to liaise with and involve key stakeholders in the infrastructure industry.
Finally, I just wanted to thank you for your support, trust and assistance to FIDIC during the year. It is very much appreciated and we look forward to working together with you in 2019.
I wish you seasonal greetings and my very best wishes for a happy and peaceful holiday.
With best wishes,
For and on behalf of FIDIC
Dr Nelson Ogunshakin OBE
Chief Executive, FIDIC
