- PRESS RELEASE
The Pearl-Qatar, United Development Company's (UDC) multi-billion dollar offshore Island and one of the largest real estate developments in the country hosted on Wednesday Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and an accompanying delegation of senior officials, for an extensive presentation of the Island.
UDC Chief Executive Officer Ebrahim Al-Sulaiti welcomed the visiting delegation at The Oyster Sales Center.
The oyster-shaped building houses a giant model of The Pearl-Qatar and serves as a starting point for all official visits to the Island.
"We welcome this visit to The Pearl-Qatar by H.E. Prime Minister Samaras," Al-Sulaiti said. "The visit clearly highlights The Pearl-Qatar's positioning as a first-class international urban development, providing a golden opportunity for the Greek Prime Minister and his accompanying delegation of governmental and business leaders to venture into the Qatari market in general," he added.
He concluded, "The Pearl-Qatar is UDC's flagship development which will ultimately be home to more than 45,000 residents and boast one of the region's most elegant shopping districts. It's a mixed-use residential, retail, entertainment and cultural development second to none in the region."
Visibly engaged with the presentation of the development and its ten precincts, Samaras described The Pearl-Qatar as 'spectacular'. "We have heard a lot about The Pearl and so it was important for us to get a real hands-on perspective of the Island and to learn about some of its wonderful areas and districts," he added.
"Venice at The Pearl-Qatar is a brilliant idea, the whole Island is a brilliant idea," he said, later jotting in the Oyster Guest Book the note: "congratulations for this magnificent project."
Regularly scheduled visits to The Pearl-Qatar are extended to high-profile investors, government officials and business leaders from around the world. They highlight the Island's positioning as a major urban mixed-use development in Qatar, and that it is at once a residential destination, a retail haven and a luxury resort bringing the ambiance and lifestyle of the Mediterranean to the heart of Arabia.
