“We are living in historic times of UAE when the country has launched iconic projects of Expo 2020 and its ambitious Space Mission. These projects have direct impact on UAE’s economy and businesses. Imran Farooq added: “Our foray into Dubai’s real estate market with the launch of Samana Greens and Samana Hills, has received overwhelming response from investors. To capitalize on the Expo opportunity, we will soon launch new projects that will be built to meet the accommodation needs of tourist influx.”
