“Our objective is not only to provide homes for nationals, but also to develop integrated residential communities, provide a high quality of life and create a social system that ensures family stability," he added. 

Sheikh Hamdan also toured housing projects that are being developed in Al Warqa 4 and Al Khawaneej 2 for AED1.7 billion.

"Over the coming months, we will launch a series of community projects under the auspices of the Higher Committee for Development and Citizens Affairs to ensure a high quality of life for all members of the community," Sheikh Hamdan added.

As part of the 20-year national housing programme launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai with a historic budget of AED65 billion, housing loans worth AED4.8 billion have been approved in a single year.
