Dewan’s business in the region has remained largely unaffected by the unrest, and we are confident that our growth will continue as per our plans.”
“At the moment, we are focusing our energies on preparing for Cityscape Abu Dhabi, and on negotiating some key contracts we are expecting to close in Q2 of 2011 in Iraq, Saudi and the UAE,” Al Assam continued, hinting that there might be major announcements made at the event regarding some of these contracts.
