Al Zarooni said Dubai provides a legislative environment that takes into account the rights of all parties and maintains discipline for citizens and foreigners."

Al Zarooni suggested that the high demand for the residential real estate market will continue due to the stimulus measures taken by the Emirate of Dubai, along with the launch of new mega projects that will attract more investors, property buyers and investors, especially foreigners.
