MPs yesterday extended by four months a probe into economic and real estate “stagnation” in the country.
The investigation focuses on six core issues.
They are: Closure of several local businesses; cancellation of commercial registrations (CRs) by the owners; a rise in the number of dud cheques; an increase in the number of financial disputes in courts; visibly empty shops and apartments; and failing projects in the real estate sector.
However, some MPs have called for the committee to be suspended due to the Covid-19 crisis.
“When the market was in stagnation for unexplained reasons there was something to investigate, but now things are different with Covid-19 and there is nothing to look into,” said Mahmood Al Bahrani.
The government needs time to help rejuvenate the market and our investigation wouldn’t achieve anything.
