Webinar: Covid-19 impact on the engineering and Construction sector

June 27 @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm

The Ethiopian Association of Civil Engineers (EACE) invites you to a webinar on the impacts of COVID-19 on the construction industry of Ethiopia.

As the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise in the world, the effects of the virus both domestically and internationally increase. The construction industry is experiencing impacts on their operations because of COVID-19.

These impacts include, among others, schedule delays, workforce disruptions, equipment and supply chain disruptions, reduced productivity due to on site health and safety measures (e.g., social distancing, staggering of work, enhanced sanitary measures, etc.), additional costs, and financing restrictions or cash flow shortages.

The challenges and possible opportunities (if there are) of COVID-19 on the construction industry of our country will be discussed on the event.

WFEO Executive Vice-President and Federation of African Engineering Organisations (FAEO) Past President Mustafa Shehu will speak at the event.

Date: June 27, 2020. Time: 8:30 am – 1:00 pm local time (CET: 7:30 am – 12:00 pm).
