The UAE has become a major tourist destination, with the hospitality industry generating over $20bn annually.

Global mega event Expo2020 in conjunction with UAE Vision 2021 are fulfilling the demand for new bespoke mixed use schemes. Additionally, due to its strategic geographical location and modern infrastructure, the UAE is a leading logistics and travel hub.

The country continues to benefit from major injection of capital aimed at further enhancing the infrastructure network and developing top class property in order to make the UAE among the best countries to live in the world.
