“We confirm the creation of a co-enterprise with a Qatari company,” the spokesman said, referring to a newspaper report in France’s Les Echos on Tuesday.

“The Qatari company will take 51 percent in this co-enterprise … the company is being registered and its composition should be official in the next days,” he said.

Qatar is committed to investing $20-$25 billion in tourism infrastructure development ahead of the soccer tournament, the head of its state-run tourism authority told Reuters in August.

Bouygues Batiment International, the international arm of Bouygues Construction, needs to tie up with a Qatari group to be able to participate in any tender offers, Les Echos said.

In Qatar, BBI is building the Barwa Financial District in Doha, a 700,000 square metre real estate complex. (Reporting by Caroline Jacobs and Alexandre Boksenbaum-Granier. Editing by Jane Merriman) *image from bcreative.al
