More opportunities for growth in the B&H building industry are to be found in the civil engineering sector, where there are a number of schemes in addition to Corridor Vc under discussion for major road, rail and energy production developments. These are large-scale construction projects requiring the creation of consortiums to carry out the range of tasks involved and to be concurrent at the international tenders.
