Pablo Bueno admires Iran’s private sector
The president of the FIDIC has expressed his view about
consulting engineering industry, the challenges of Iran toward communicating
with world regarding to its challenging sanction in an exclusive interview with
Payam Sakhteman weekly.
“The consulting engineering industry in Iran privileged
from highest quality and the consulting engineers studding and training in Iran
are at the top at the age of technology all around the world and of course
inside Iran." He said.
Bueno continued: "I
mean despite of all the sanctions Iranians are going on and they are able to
develop the infrastructures of the
country, of course there is still a lot to be done, they could provides better services if transportation In
the cities modifies, Iranian have to work on traffic issues and expand the airports facilities and so on.”
Two main Challenges
“In Iran like in some other developing countries there is
always a challenge that governmental agencies try to control and like many
other developing countries manipulate private agencies." He said.
"Iran has a very developed consulting engineering in
private sector and don’t need to compete with local governmental agencies
because they are qualify enough To do the job abroad and they could even compete with foreign countries out of
Iran to providing their engineering services."
"If you want to develop the sustainable engineering industry
you have to let Iranian companies work in fair conditions in this country, I
believe that inappropriate competitions
sometimes come in from governmental agencies. Private sector has improved to be
much more efficient, cheaper and qualified than governmental agencies so I
think that this is one of the risks. Another risk is that consulting engineering
terms are not on time and they cannot afford their financing services. Also in
some developing countries you realize that the services are not received on
time. In many countries it’s bylaw that you cannot delay more than days but in
some others the companies' delays and delay.” President of FIDEC added.
“It's the first time I am in Iran and I am sorry about
that. I saw Iran as I didn’t expected. It’s a great country. Wonderful people
and wonderful place but something I can say about Iran is being the country
mainly isolated.” Bueno said at the end.
