The UAE has emerged as the business capital of the Middle East leading in areas such as tourism, real estate, financial services, the oil industry and its tremendous growth during the last decade, in the field of construction. Attracting world attention through many innovative large construction projects in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Ras Al Khaima and Umm Al Quwain.

Dubai, UAE in particular has seen the inauguration of The Metro Rail System, The Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, expansion of the world’s 4th busiest International Airport and now the 7th busiest cargo airport in the world and the Palm Island. Dubai is also an international financial centre and has been ranked 1st within the Middle East as surveyed by the Mastercard Worldwide Centres of Commerce Index (2007).

As a country, our heritage began with the dreams and forethought of our wise leaders inspired to achieve the unachievable.

Al Habtoor Trading Enterprises began business in the late 1980’s as a General Trading Company and has since diversified its business activities into Automobiles, Construction, Engineering & Project Management, Waste Management, Electro Mechanical, Building Materials, Financial Services, Information Technology, Consultancy, Human Resources, Travel & Tourism and Real Estate.
