Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, on Monday morning, inaugurated the three-day Cityscape Global exhibition, which is being hosted by the Dubai World Trade Centre.
Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed toured the exhibition halls and learnt about the most important real estate, tourism and entertainment projects being executed by national and international companies. Nearly 300 real estate companies and specialised entities from within and outside the country are participating in this annual event in its 16th edition.
Sheikh Hamdan stopped at a number of pavilions of companies exhibiting their current and future projects and heard their plans to contribute to developing this vital sector, which forms the main axis in achieving economic stability for various sectors and members of the community.
Sheikh Hamdan visited the pavilions of IMKAN Properties LLC, Majid Al Futtaim Properties LLC, Aldar Properties PJSC – Abu Dhabi, Dubai Holding, Dubai Investments Real Estate Company, Meraas Development LLC, Nakheel PJSC, Falcon City of Wonders LLC and Damac Properties. He viewed the models and maps of residential, tourism, and entertainment projects being developed by these companies. He also interacted with the directors of these companies and learnt the strategic plans that they employ for the execution of these massive projects.
Expressing his satisfaction with the efforts made by these national companies, he stressed the importance of this sector in supporting the national economy, diversifying its sources, and expanding it locally, regionally and internationally. He said Dubai is considered one of the leading cities in the world in this field and is the favoured destination for regional and international investors.
Sheikh Hamdan also viewed a huge model of the integrated community, District 2020, while visiting the Expo Dubai 2020 pavilion. After the end of the international event in the first quarter of 2021, the space will be utilised to create a heritage hub.
