DUBAI / Emirates Business
Dubai Land Department (DLD) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Registration Authority of Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), the International Financial Centre (IFC) in Abu Dhabi. The MoU was signed by HE Sultan Butti bin Mejren, Director General of DLD, and Dhaher bin Dhaher Al Mheiri, CEO of the ADGM Registration Authority.
Bin Mejren commented: “We welcome our partnership with ADGM as the strengthening of cooperation and coordination between Dubai and other Emirates helps us achieve the vision and strategy of Dubai, and consolidates our vision to position the Emirate as the world’s premier real estate destination, and a byword for innovation, trust, and happiness.”
Bin Mejren affirmed that the new MoU helps to promote Dubai’s real estate sector, providing additional opportunities for institutions outside Dubai to enter into partnerships, paving the way for them to own properties in the freehold areas in the emirate.
Dhaher bin Dhaher Al Mheiri said: “The UAE has developed an unparalleled real estate sector and continues to bring forth new initiatives such as this to bolster the ease of doing business for investors. The strategic cooperation between ADGM and the DLD will streamline regulations and policies to enhance accessibility into the real estate market. The MoU serves to augment the sustainable growth of the sector and contribute towards the UAE’s development as one of the world’s leading real estate investment destinations.”
The MoU will contribute to the expansion of partnerships for DLD. Having been previously limited to free zones in Dubai, it now gains access to the financial free zone in Abu Dhabi, improving the outstanding performance of the government, raising the level of competitiveness of the Emirate, and providing facilitated and transparent services for all investors.
