FIDIC CEO’s Update – Issue 23: January 2022

 

Issue 23: January 2022
Dear colleagues

Happy New Year and welcome to issue number 23 of the FIDIC CEO’s Update, my regular round-up of the latest FIDIC activities, initiatives and events and the first update of a brand-new year.

Introduction
Like last year, the start of 2022 sees the Covid-19 pandemic still very much with us. The Omicron variant of the virus has created more challenges for the world, with many countries reintroducing lockdowns and restrictions to reduce the spread of the virus. While the key to overcoming Covid internationally is the widespread global implementation of the vaccination roll-out.

Like most organisations across our sector, FIDIC is continuing to work on its 2022 plans and will adopt an agile approach to the events and activities that we are organising over the coming 12 months.
A key highlight of the year will obviously be the FIDIC Global Infrastructure Conference which we really hope will be able to take place as an in-person event in Geneva (see below) but as with all event planning currently we will need to keep our options open and we are exploring hybrid alternatives for the conference. The uncertainty of the past two years has taught us all to expect and plan for the unexpected and I am confident that the FIDIC management team under the direction of the board will continue to work in an agile and flexible way to ensure that we deliver on behalf of our members and the wider global industry in the months ahead.
