The main stadium for the Qatar 2022 World Cup final, located in the coastal city of Lusail, was built by China Railway Con-struction Corp (CRCC). According to China Economic Net (CEN), Mu-hammad Saif Ijaz, a Pakistani Contract Manager with CRCC who worked on this project, praised his coworkers’ efforts despite the heat.

“This was my first experience participating in such a huge construction project and I’m lucky to get this opportunity. This project is an iconic project not only for Qatar but for the entire world. It would help my career in the future”, Saif Ijaz added.

When asked about how it felt to be a part of the construction, he said it helped him understand Qatar’s traditions and culture, and that he spent almost 5 years there where everyone was treated the same according to local law, regardless of whether “you are a foreigner or a local citizen.”

“Everything was difficult. FIFA was involved in this project, and we had to manage over 300 subcontrac-tors, but we did it successfully. The most important thing is that our seniors were very kind, nice, and helpful, particularly the Chinese fellows who assisted me greatly. I am delighted to be working with my Chinese colleagues. They instilled a sense of responsibility and trust in me “, he explained.

He stated that it is an honor for him and his company to be a part of the construction of Lusail Stadium, which will host the World Cup final. He went on to say that Chinese contractors are not only financially sound, but also skilled and hardworking.

“We completed this project on time, and I believe that if it had been built by another foreign company, it would have been difficult for them not only finan-cially, but also technically.

Chinese steel contractors performed admirably be-cause the steel building part of this project was the most difficult, and I appreciated the Qatar govern-ment’s decision to award this contract to China Railway Construction Corp company “, he explained.—INP
