Farhad Azizi, CEO of Azizi Developments, commented, "The rapid development of local infrastructure shows the full commitment of the Dubai government in its delivery of announced plans." The Dubai Water Canal inaugurated on November 9th, is a recent example of the government's commitment to plan for Expo 2020. "The government systems are in place to encourage development from a micro perspective. When evaluated at the macro level, we are finding that currencies are in our favor; in addition, the new government changes in the United States and Europe are directing investments towards this region. This launch not only reflects our success but showcases Dubai's booming real estate market," added Farhad. The company's confidence in the market derives from evaluations of deficits, trade balances and other consumer indicators. The 50 new projects to be developed in various areas in Dubai are currently in the land acquisition, permit application and design stages. The company currently has 15 projects in Al Furjan, two in the Palm and the first in Dubai Healthcare City.
