“As we begin to wrap up the year, we thank our customers, shareholders, employees, and partners for their ongoing commitment. Together we take a step closer to Expo 2020 and the demand the festival will create for the real estate industry. For that we thank the visionary leadership of the UAE, which drives ongoing initiative and growth, and continues to attract more and more visitors and investors to the country each year.” added Sajwani.
