Thomson Reuters Projects platform launched to target MENA construction sector

Thomson Reuters launched its latest online platform: Thomson Reuters Projects.

Designed to cater to professionals in an increasingly complex, sophisticated and competitive construction industry, TR Projects will introduce reliable information, transparency and actionable insight into one of the region’s key development Industries.

With the construction market’s growing demand for a platform that can provide detailed project information, Thomson Reuters Projects is set to empower professionals with the data, market insights, news, research and analysis they require to gain full visibility of the project pipeline, achieve transparency on the supply chain, prepare for tenders and bids, mitigate risks, control costs, find opportunities, and make better decisions to stay ahead of the competition.

Thomson Reuters unveiled its latest platform on the first day of its “Future of MENA” seminar series, held to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the international news and information provider’s presence in the MENA region. The three-day seminar series brings together government and business leaders to explore perspectives in economic and human development, energy, and technology.

Nadim Najjar, Managing Director of Thomson Reuters in the MENA region, said:

“In an increasingly volatile and competitive market, the construction industry continues to be a key economic driver for markets across the Middle East & North Africa region, with nearly one tenth of the region’s GDP related to construction output. With a $2 trillion dollar pipeline of projects planned in the GCC, Thomson Reuters Projects is a game-changing proposition that will give professionals in-depth data, insights, research and analysis of the construction industry like never before.”

Available on Thomson Reuters’ Eikon business terminal, as well as via web portal and a dedicated mobile device application, Thomson Reuters Projects offers functions and call support to serve professionals in Sales & Marketing, Research & Reporting, Risk & Procurement, and Forecasting & Planning. The platform will also be beneficial for supporting industries such as Financing & Compliance in government, banks, law firms, insurance companies, and management consultancies, as well as shipping and air freight, human resources, Information Technology, and telecommunications in the Logistics & Services industries.

Thomson Reuters Projects has the most accurate and comprehensive projects database covering the full project life cycle and all main participants with contact details within the energy, infrastructure, and real estate sectors in the MENA region. By leveraging cutting-edge technology, a vast network of journalists, content researchers and industry relationships, Thomson Reuters is one of the first providers to access and verify early-phase project data.
