Featured: The Future of African Growth – Mohamed Alabbar

Strong demand for natural resources and rapid urbanisation are transforming Africa’s economies. Cities are drawing in hundreds of thousands of people, opening up huge new opportunities for positive change, but also creating major risks. At the same time, foreign investment is pouring into African oil, minerals and food commodities, driving growth but bringing tensions. As a major investor in both African smart cities and mineral reserves, Mohamed Alabbar discusses his perspective on driving and shaping positive growth in Africa.

Mohamed Alabbar (Arabicمحمد بن علي العبار‎), is a businessman in the real estate and property development industry of the United Arab Emirates and former director general of the Dubai Department of Economic Development.[1] Alabbar is the founder and chairman of Emaar Properties, one of the largest real estate development companies in the Middle East and known for developing the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building and the Dubai Mall, the world’s largest mall. Alabbar is a Board Member of Abu Dhabi-based Eagle Hills, and he also acts as a top adviser to Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the leader of Dubai.
