In the last four years of our participation in the show, PMV Live has proven to be one of the best exhibitions to engage with customers from the construction sector in the Middle East region-wide.
How do you view the current market for the building and construction sectors in the GCC?
All over the GCC, we are involved in major construction projects with our vehicles and the demand for high quality trucks in construction did increase significantly in the last years.
