The con­fer­ence not only show­cased the Real Es­tate project pipe­line in the Emi­rate but also re­in­forced the Emi­rate as a sta­ble in­vest­ment des­ti­na­tion. The con­fer­ence was a huge suc­cess and brought 350 del­e­gates and in­vestors from across the GCC re­gion, India, South Asia, and Pak­istan among oth­ers and was aimed at har­ness­ing the po­ten­tial of the Real Es­tate sec­tor in the Emi­rate.

HE Yafea Al Faraj, Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of Real Es­tate Reg­u­la­tory Agency Aj­man, said: “The ‘Aj­man Real Es­tate Con­fer­ence 1’ by Real Es­tate Reg­u­la­tory Agency - Aj­ma­nis a ma­jor step for­ward for Aj­man real es­tate sec­tor and co­in­cides with the strong growth on wit­ness in the Emi­rate. These are ex­cit­ing times for Aj­man, and the im­mense growth po­ten­tial on of­fer will get a ma­jor boost from the con­fer­ence.”

This, cou­pled with a sta­ble mar­ket, of­fers the right en­vi­ron­ment for in­vest­ments. Aj­man has over 18,000 ready-to-oc­cupy units avail­able in the mar­ket by re­puted de­vel­op­ers, at un­be­liev­able price points.
