Operating under the name Aldar Properties, the business is one of the biggest real estate developers in the region. The company benefits from a strong balance sheet, a large asset base, a prime land bank for development and an experienced management team. These strengths, combined with our continued close partnership with the Abu Dhabi Government, will allow us to flourish commercially in an economy that is sustainable. I believe that all these strong and exciting fundamentals will deliver significant value to all our stakeholders for years to come."
