Ali Majed Al Mansoori, Chairman, Tourism Development & Investment Co (TDIC), will soon conclude the financing of The District, the largest shopping mall in the Emirate. The construction work will start in March-April 2015 and will be completed by 2017. The project will hold more than 550 units across 269,000 sq m of leasable space. Amongst Mansoori´s other laurels are the re-opening of the southern runway of the Abu Dhabi International Airport - the largest runway operations in the world and the luxury VIP Terminal at Abu Dhabi International Airport. That´s not it. Al Mansoori ensured the ´World's Leading Sustainable Tourism Destination´ for Sir Bani Yas Island, at the 2014 World Travel Awards through dedicated environmental and conservation efforts. He has also improved worker welfare on Saadiyat Island. Hope the New Year rejuvenates Al Mansoori for more such dedicated efforts. Kudos!
