Nakheel Chairman Ali Rashid Lootah said: “Dubai is a global destination for tourism and trade, of which retail is a key element. As a major developer who has already delivered some of Dubai’s world-famous projects, Nakheel is bringing significant new opportunities for retailers and consumers through a major expansion into the retail development sector.
