CAIRO – 28 March 2021: UAE-Emaar Properties plans to increase the volume of its business in the Egyptian market by 30 percent, according to Emirati businessman Mohamed Al-Abbar, founder of Emaar.

He emphasized that the company's investments in the Egyptian market are limited to real estate activities only, and the company is constantly seeking new investment opportunities in Egypt.
