BACKGROUND AND SCOPE
The Fifth International Conference on Multinational Joint Ventures for Construction Works aims to promote research and development and to provide an international platform for practitioners and researchers to discuss various subjects in the area of multinational joint ventures.

The global economic crisis facing the construction industries of all advanced and developing nations provides the backdrop to this years’ Conference. The focus will be on how joint venture strategies in the construction industry can help firms develop their businesses in an extremely volatile, competitive, and risky economic environment. As domestic markets shrink, construction businesses attempt to seek opportunities abroad. Appropriate and effective approaches to joint ventures become even more imperative. The Fifth International Conference on Joint Ventures will build on the work of the previous sessions but with an urgent agenda, given the critical nature of the world economy and extremely high risk nature of international business.

This year’s event also incorporates the inaugural ‘Construction in the Muslim World Conference.’ The key aim of this Conference is to draw attention to the importance of construction in developing Muslim economies especially in the context of promoting and sustaining socio-economic growth and development;
