HE Engineer Essa Al Maidoor, chairman of the Society of Engineers – UAE said Dubai hosting the Expo 2020 would create numerous job opportunities for engineers in the country and region.
At a roundtable conference held prior to the Arabian Tunnelling Conference & Exhibition, Al Maidoor, who is also the director-general of the Department of Health Authority said the number of engineers in the country had increased from 26,000 in 2011 to 31,000 in 2013.

“It’s too early to accurately predict how many engineers will be needed in the city to prepare for the Expo,” Al Maidoor said, “but there will definitely be an increased demand for them since projects will be undertaken to develop infrastructure.”
