Commenting on the global economic downturn and its impact on the real estate sector in Ajman Al Barghouti said,
"Despite the repercussion of the global financial crisis that has left tangible mark on different sectors in the global markets, specifically the real estate sector, the United Arab Emirates, represented by its leadership has managed to contain the effects of the global meltdown and taken series of practical measures, including pumping over a Dhs100bn to be almost the first country to take such action in order to support its financial sector and to provide the necessary liquidity to local banks to play their primary roles including providing wide-ranging financial services as well as funding of real estate projects."
"I am quite confident that the property sector in the United Arab Emirates is recovering and in a takeoff position." Al Barguthi pointed out that the wise policy of His Highness Sheikh Humaid Bin Rashid Al-Nuaimi, Member of the Supreme Council and the Ruler of the Emirate of Ajman, helped boost the economic growth of Ajman."
