  • Continuing to increase our presence in growth geographies like South East Asia, India, CIS, East Africa and the Americas
  • Good progress in 2018, winning US$1.9 billion of awards in growth markets

Enhance returns for our shareholders by:

  • Completing our return to a capital light business model through additional non-core asset divestments
