Mr. Sherif Wassef was invited to submit two papers in front of an audience of Egyptian Consulting Engineers from Egypt and the Arab World.
TOPIC #1 focussed on effective cooperation between Arab Consultants and Consulting Firms. The process of forming an associated practice begins with asking questions to turn the association into a win-win situation, as a means for growing and sharing expertise in general. The presentation explored types of contractual arrangements for an association, its objectives, and the advantages of associated practice, elaborating on the issues to be avoided and suggestions for a road map to success.
TOPIC #2 focussed on FIDIC contracts which was presented on two sessions, as follows:
Session 1 – Introduction to FIDIC contracts, and official Arabic translation by Professor Dr. Gamal Nassar.
Session 2 – The Roles of the Parties in FIDIC Contracts: During and after the 25th of January Revolution.
