As a Group, it is a moment to reflect on the journey so far and look ahead to the quarter that remains. In the face of evolving economic landscapes and global challenges, Dubai Investments has continued to demonstrate resilience and agility and the Group’s financial performance for H1 2023 has been strong, with steady revenue growth and healthy profit margins

The UAE's commitment to diversifying its economy away from oil dependence is yielding impressive results. The region is witnessing substantial growth in sectors such as tourism, technology, and renewable energy and Dubai Investments has been actively participating in this transformation by progressively exploring investment opportunities.

Dubai Investments has established itself as a trailblazer in the real estate sector, synonymous with innovation, quality, and sustainability. The Group’s portfolio of projects across UAE with few planned developments on the existing land banks, and beyond is a testament to not only creating a mark but also capitalising on this lucrative sector.

Talking about expanding the realm of Dubai Investments real estate beyond UAE, the Group’s investments in the Angolan market is progressing steadily with the ongoing development of the Dubai Investments Park ( DIP) Angola. The project is envisioned as a successor to the proven DIP model on an international stage and in a lucrative market like Africa.

As Dubai Investments moves forward, the Group recognizes the paramount importance of technology in driving business growth and the ongoing digital transformation efforts are in line with the Group’s goal to remain at the forefront of innovation.

Let us together continue to remain upbeat about the Group’s achievements and let us continue to maintain this momentum and deliver value.
