“The strong financial performance of the company during the half-year highlights the strength of Dubai’s economy and its appeal to international investors and tourists,” Emaar Properties chairman Mohamed Alabbar.
“While our property business recorded positive growth with several new residential destinations launched in Dubai, our malls, hospitality, leisure and entertainment business benefited from the increase in tourist arrivals and boost in domestic spending.”
According to company statistics, more than 67 million people visited Emaar malls in H1 2017, 3 percent more than in 2017.
