Our shareholders equity also increased by AED 138mn by the end of last year,” he added. The decision was taken to publicise the private company’s results in light of the achievement made.

UAE National Development continues to be a core focus with 40% of senior management and 18% of white collar staff positions held by UAE Nationals,” he continued.
