We promise everyone a schedule of activities and events that contribute to enhancing transparency in this sector and strengthening Dubai’s position in line with our vision to establish the Emirate as the world’s premier destination for innovation, trust and happiness.”
Bin Mejren added: “Our local and regional partnerships have achieved several positive outcomes as they have allowed us to interact directly with investors looking for ideal investment options. Dubai has earned a bright reputation among the world’s real estate investors and buyers, and we believe it is our duty to provide them with a clear picture of our city and where our real estate sector is headed. The competition between developers is healthy and friendly, and the Dubai real estate market continues its sustainable growth and maturity.”
Her Excellency Majida Ali Rashid, Assistant Director General and Head of the Real Estate Investment Management and Promotion Center, said: “Dubai is a safe environment for living, working and investing. Thanks to its diversified economic climate, which is capable of attracting business across all sectors, as well as promising growth activities and new industries, Dubai has been able to achieve a leading position in the region. All of these features ensure not only that the investor works in an ideal environment, but also that the Emirate continues its sustainable growth and success.”
