Moreover, Al-Shamsi pointed out that “the diversity of real estate projects launched by the government in various regions of the emirate, in addition to its establishment, sponsorship, and participation in many events and exhibitions, such as Sharjah Real Estate Exhibition (ACRES), which is organised yearly, have all contributed to highlighting the many investment opportunities that Sharjah abounds, enhancing confidence in the real estate field in the emirate, succeeding in attracting foreign direct investments, new developers, and continuously revitalizing the market.”
