H.E Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, Chairman of Aldar, said: “We commend and are grateful for our wise leadership for its prompt and decisive action to limit the impact of unprecedented market conditions on the community and businesses. The latest initiatives launched by the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, and the AED 100 billion support package launched by the UAE Central Bank, will strengthen the resilience of our economy. The programs launched by Aldar form part of our long-term sustainable approach towards our economy and stakeholders.”

Talal Al Dhiyebi, CEO of Aldar, said: “As the leading real estate company in Abu Dhabi, we are focussed on long term sustainable value creation. As such, we will continue to demonstrate our leadership and responsibility in support of the long-term success of our stakeholders. The schemes we are launching today will help ensure that we emerge from this period together in a position of strength and resilience. The underlying fundamentals of our market remain uniquely sound and we believe that we have the resources to see ourselves through the coming period.”
