The collaboration between UAE and Egypt in developing Egypt’s New Capital City can be extended to other Arab countries as a model relationship, UAE economy minister said on Monday.
UAE’s Economy Minister Sultan Bin Saeed Al Mansouri made his remarks after he had inaugurated the 11th edition of International Property Show.
He added: "The UAE’s involvement in this ambitious project reflects a pioneering initiative, and we look at it as a model that other countries can follow and emulate. The UAE has gained tremendous expertise in the real estate field that could benefit other countries in the wider region.
He said, "Real estate is considered one of the most significant investments worldwide and it forms one of the main pillars of any economy. This sector is witnessing strong growth, especially in the Arab world, and therefore both private and government sectors in Arab countries must take it seriously by taking actions like new legislation, support, innovation and easy liquidity."
Attracting hundreds of exhibitors from around the world, the 11th International Property Show is offering a variety of real estate investment options from places like the US, Spain and Canada.
The event has brought together 300 exhibitors from 130 countries offering direct buying opportunities to interested buyers.
A full range of properties from ultra-luxury residences to more affordable developments in the UAE are on offer.
There are also exhibitors showcasing investment options in cities like Manhattan and New York, as well as amazing offers in Europe. Some are linking their properties to residence visa schemes.
