Damac Owner Hussain Sajwani Claims That Dubai Benefits Most From Middle East Tensions

The Middle East has for the longest time witnessed some of the most volatile political landscapes. From the Iran-Iraq to the Iraq-Kuwait wars and political turmoil in Egypt and Somalia, these Islamic nations have had their share on misfortunes. And Hussain Sajwan the Daman Owner, a group of international businesses extending from real estate to hospitality, believes that Dubai has benefited most from all these in fights and wars.

Elites troops in

The real estate developer argues that every time the political heat rises in the Middle Eastern countries, their elite class moves in droves into Dubai, which was ranked the fifth safest city in the world. In most cases, they will move back to the tensions subside.

However, some tend to move their businesses and centers of operation from the country and shift them to Dubai, further enriching the already fattened city. Its neutrality in political involvements in these tensions makes it the perfect trading partner with all the idle eastern nations.

Facts back real estate entrepreneur Hussain Sajwani and his theory by illustrating that Dubai benefited most during the Iraq-Kuwait wars as well as during the long periods of political unrest in Somalia. Currently, the two countries have some of the highest numbers of immigrants living in the UAE. Most of these have established thriving businesses in Dubai that have become a part of the City’s backbone.

More about the Damac Owner

Hussain Sajwani established Damac group as the parent company to many of his businesses interests. He has particularly made a name for himself in the field of luxury real estate with his Damac Properties Company established in 2002. Through the outfit, he has worked on some of the most popular residential, commercial properties across the world and partners with equally influential real estate industry players like Donald Trump in some of these projects.

The Damac Owner who is currently ranked 5th on the Forbes list of richest Arabs has his eyes set on the Chinese real estate market. His company, Damac group was also ranked as the fifth fastest growing company in the world in 2017. Getting in an equally fast-paced market like China can only serve to further boost Damac’s fortunes.

Buoyed by the initial successes of concessions and privatizations, the government and private sector entered in more pacts that saw the privatization of numerous industries and state-owned enterprises including telecommunication, steel, and aeronautical industries.


The increase in the number of concessions and privatization deals signed between the public and private sectors was also facilitated by the passing of facilitative policies. According to Felipe Montoro Lens, the formation of National Economic and Social Development Bank (BNDES) has helped the government and the private sector to fast-track the progress of various projects initiated under concessions and PPPs. The organization brings together private and public sector players with the view of developing project financing and development framework. BNDES is responsible for developing policy guidelines for monitoring the quality of projects developed under a PPP.

Drew Madden says technological stagnation in medical field is unacceptable

When taken as a whole, the healthcare industry in the United States is easily the single largest sector of the economy. Each year, the government alone spends more than $1.5 trillion on healthcare programs. Yet, this huge sector has also proven to be one of the least efficient, with free-market principles often being subordinated to political concerns, entrenched interests and flat-out monopoly pricing power.

Evergreen Healthcare Partners seeks real change

This uncompetitive nature of the healthcare industry has led to considerable stagnation in innovation and development of potentially life-saving technologies. Drew Madden is the CEO and founder of Evergreen Healthcare Partners, one of the fastest-growing healthcare IT consulting firms in the United States. He has dedicated his more than 15-year career to understanding and solving some of the toughest issues within the healthcare field.

Madden explains that one of the things that could potentially halve healthcare costs in the U.S. is the readier adoption and adaptation of technology. Madden says that over the last five decades, the healthcare field has been almost luddite in its technological backwardness.

He points to the barcode as a prime example of the unconscionable snail’s pace that the medical establishment sets for the adoption of critical technologies. By the late 1970s, most grocery stores throughout the United States had already adopted the UPC code as the chief means by which pricing and inventory were effected. By the mid-1980s, UPC barcoding technology was used by virtually every major grocery chain in the United States as well as throughout almost all sectors of the retail establishment.

At the same time, life-saving barcoding technology that allowed for nearly error-free dispensation of drugs at the patient’s bedside is still not yet fully adopted by hospital networks across the country. Madden says that this technology is no more expensive than the inventory management systems of a typical grocery store. What’s more, it is a proven means of saving lives and reducing malpractice claims. Yet, the establishment still has not universally adopted it.

Madden says that these things are due to a simple lack of competition. If hospitals are not forced by free-market competition to spend the initial investment, they won’t, he says.
