The Arada Group CEO also shared his views on the importance of well-planned integrated communities, such as the company’s Aljada and Masaar megaprojects, and stated that Arada’s determination to put people first had significantly contributed towards the company’s success in the six years since its foundation.  Last year, Arada reported a 46% increase in sales to AED3.51 billion compared to the previous year.
