Hussain Sajwani, chairman of Damac, said: “2020 was indeed a challenging year for the global economy, with the travel and tourism industries particularly hit due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We are in a far better position for economic recovery, although I still believe it will take 12-24 months for the real estate industry to fully recover.”
