REASONS FOR VISITING MIDDLE EAST STONE
The most important reasons that Middle East Stone attracts so big attention are:
The population growth of all the GCC area and its strong demand base, the large and sustained government investments, the developmental goals set by the governments, the continuous growth of the tourism, the infrastructure development and the mega projects of the area (planned and under construction), the programs for investments on education, healthcare and housing and finally the political stability of the regimes of the GCC countries.
Dubai with its remarkable diversity is the commercial and tourism center for the whole GCC area and considered one of the world’s most connected cities gathering millions of visitors each year. Also the GCC construction sector was accelerated rapidly again in 2016, with many governments announcing a number of major development projects, especially on social infrastructure demands.
