Why don't more British contractors work abroad?


Maybe we're not competitive any more, and it's not new. Several decades ago I remember UK firms quoting a 6 month delivery for a water reticulation project in Oman. The Koreans (KCIP) had the materials on the boat in a fortnight, together with a pipe laying team. and they were cheaper! Bill Addington is right. We can only win work when supported by a finance package.
