Former President of MNACI Mohamed Ali Janah sworn is as IFAWPCA’s 45th President

Mr. Mohamed Ali Janah has taken oath as President of the International Federation of Asian and Western Pacific Contractors’ Association, at the 44th IFAWPCA Convention held at the KLCC Convention center, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
IFAWPCA itself is an organization with a fraternity of builders from 19-member countries and plays a vital role in promoting international fellowship and corporation; in developing beneficial relationships between government and contractors in the region and to further civil & building and construction projects of member countries. IFAWPCA was introduced to the Maldives by Mr. Janah after his first IFAWPCA Convention in Gold Coast, Australia in 2007.
Mr. Janah is currently the Chairman of Hotels and Resorts Construction Pvt Ltd, Chairman of Maldives Building and Construction Board and is also a Board Member of the Maldives Monetary Authority. He has previously served as the President of Maldives National Association of Construction and as the 1st Vice President of IFAWPCA.
Addressing the 1000+ guests present at the ceremony, Mr. Janah called upon all associates of the member countries on the importance of empowering the youth entrepreneurs, recognition of human rights by the employer and urged delegates to strive together to achieve their main goals. He also proposed to facilitate the formation of an investors club which can mediate investment opportunities between member countries.
Under Mr. Janah’s presidency, the next IFAWPCA Convention is to be held in the Maldives in 2020 and an estimated 1500 delegates are expected to come. While the possibility of fitting 1500 delegates into one conference is hard to picture, the members of MNACI board stated that it is not impossible and that Maldives has the full capacity to host such a big event.
During Mr. Janah’s tenure as IFAWPCA’s president, the position of Secretary General would be filled for by Mr. Abdulla Mohamed. And Mr. Alau Ali would be representing Maldives on the IFAWPCA Executive Board.
