The Malaga-based construction firm IELCO is beginning to see a return on its dedication to the Middle East, and above all Qatar, the country which in 2022 will be hosting the Football World Cup, an event which will place the emirate at the centre of the global stage.

The group headed by Ana L贸pez Caparr贸s has already won a number of contracts through IELCO International, in which a leading sheik of the Al-Thani family holds a 51% stake, a specific mandatory shareholding requirement in order to operate in the country.
