Egypt's Islamic art museum reopens three years after car bomb

Egypt's Museum of Islamic Art will reopen today three years after it was badly damaged by a car bomb that blew up outside a nearby police headquarters. 

The museum, which is home to one of the world's most important collections of Muslim art, has been closed since January 2014 when the explosion ripped into the building.

The blast damaged 179 artifacts but the museum said its experts had been able to repair all but ten of them. The restored objects will go back on display with special gold labels.  

This also includes the construction of a new runway with a width of 60 m for large aircraft and 40 new airsides.

The Egyptian government hailed the museum's reopening as sign of stability even though the country is regularly wracked by violence and attacks from extremists.   

"The inauguration of the Museum of Islamic Art embodies Egypt's victory against terrorism, its capability and willingness to repair what terrorism has damaged, and to stand against terrorist attempts to destroy its heritage," said Khaled El-Enany, the minister of antiquities. 

Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, the Egyptian president, officially opened the building on Wednesday in a ceremony that was closed to the public and to the media. 

Mr Sisi has faced mounting criticism over his handling of the economy and in recent weeks his aides have been careful to keep him away from the press, even from media groups that are supportive of his government. 

Tourism has slumped in Egypt since a Russian airliner was blown up the Islamic State (Isil) shortly after it left Sharm el-Sheikh in October 2015 and Egypt's government hopes the museum's opening will help coax foreigners to return.   

The museum was first opened in 1903 and it stores around 100,000 artifacts, of which only around 5,000 can be displayed at any one time. The collection includes pieces from early Islamic history through to the Ottoman empire and from across the Islamic world. 

There are some pieces made by Jews and Christians, a symbol of Islam's tolerance,  said Ahmed Al-Shoky, the museum's director. "The message of the Museum of Islamic Art is that whether you are Muslim or not you are welcome to be a creator if you have contributed to the Islamic civilization."

The central Cairo museum has spent most of the 21st century closed. It shut in 2002 for redevelopment and did not reopen until 2010, only to shut again in 2011 during the Egyptian revolution. 

The latest restoration was financed with a £6.5 million gift from the UAE along with financing and technical help from Italy, Germany, the US and Unesco.

Saudi Arabia to build 280,000 new housing units

Bahrain is set to start work on its $1-billion King Abdullah Medical City project in June. The mammoth project, to be operated by Arabian Gulf University, will employ more than 700 medical staff, said a report.

As part of the program, 120,000 housing units of various built-up areas in all regions of the Kingdom will be given to citizens depending on income level and the number of family members, reported Saudi Gazette, citing the Ministry of Housing officials.

A total of 75,000 residential plots of land in several cities ready for construction will also be handed over to citizens, stated the report.

Financial support to 85,000 deserving citizens will also be provided in one year by the state.

This will be done through a partnership between the Real Estate Development Fund, banks, and financing institutions, it added.

Saudi Arabia says no fees on expats' remittances

The Saudi Arabia's Finance Ministry has announced that there would be no fees applied on remittances out of the country.

Saudi Arabia is "committed to the principle of free movement of capital in and out of the kingdom, in line with international standards," the ministry's official Twitter account said.  

The announcement comes days after the kingdom's advisory Shura Council said it was looking at a proposal to impose a six percent levy on expatriate remittances.- TradeArabia News Service

Saudi Arabia tells expats to register fingerprints or face problems

Saudi Arabia's Passports Department (Jawazat) has told expatriates to register their fingerprints and those of any dependents aged above six years in order not to lose access to electronic services.

Jawazat said it will freeze residents' computer records and thus their access to electronic services if they do not register. Fingerprinting centres have been set up in the Kingdom and the process will be smooth and hassle free, Jawazat claimed.

"The centres have been supplied with advanced equipment and highly qualified manpower to expedite the process of fingerprinting," the passports body said in a statement.

Earlier this week, Jawazat denied it is about to launch the second part of a three phase crackdown on illegals in the country. According to the reports, illegal expatriates would be given three months to leave the country or face being imprisoned, blacklisted and deported with no chance of being allowed back in.

The organisation has, however, reminded people in Saudi Arabia on visit visas to leave before the visa expires, or face legal action.

"Any person who is currently in the Kingdom on a visit visa will face punishment if he/she delays departure to their respective homes or any other destination," it said.

The punishments for overstayers include imprisonment an/or fines, plus deportation.

Legal residents and citizens were reminded that they are also responsible for the behaviour of visitors on their sponsorship and could face punishment for not reporting overstayers.

Expats in Saudi to pay fee for each dependent

New expats in Saudi Arabia and those renewing their residency permits will have to pay a fee for each of their dependents from this year, it was reported on Monday.

From July 1, expats will be hit with a SR100 ($26) annual fee per dependent, payable in advance at the time of visa issuance or on renewing their 'iqamas' (residency permits), according to Saudi Gazette.

Sources told the newspaper the fee would increase in 12 months' time, to SR200 ($53) per dependent from July 2018, SR300 ($79) from July 2019, and SR400 ($106) from July 2020.

It comes as the kingdom faces ongoing pressure to plug its fiscal deficit and boost state revenues amid low oil prices.

The sources reportedly said the dependency fees will go to the state treasury, along with the current SR200 per foreign worker payable by private sector companies in Saudi Arabia.

From January 2018, the levy will be doubled to SR400 a month per expat worker, the newspaper reported. Then, in 2019, the fee will be hiked to SR600 ($159), and to SR800 ($213) in 2020.

Qatar working on '2017 Parking Master Plan'

Qatar is set to give final shape to its '2017 Parking Master Plan' which will see introduction of a new parking policy as well as bring plans for new parking lots and the adoption of sophisticated multi-level automated parking systems.

The parking related problems are on the rise in Qatar with an increase in population and the number of vehicles, reported The Peninsula, citing senior officials from the Ministry of Transport and Communication.

According to technical calculations, commercial and office developments require one parking space for every 65 sq m of floor area, while residential colonies need either one space per 120 sq m or one space per apartment.

With the parking issue worsening day by day owing to a spurt in population and the number of vehicles in the country, the ministry is racing against time to get the 2017 master plan ready before the second annual Smart Parking Qatar conference to be held from April 10 to 11.

The second annual Smart Parking Qatar conference, a component of Project Qatar exhibition, will "develop car parking management strategies and innovations for sustainable and livable cities".

Market sources think that automated mechanized parking systems could be the solution to parking woes particularly in urban areas.

These systems can be ideally installed in condensed urban areas to provide a quick and reliable solution to parking problems, it stated.

According to experts, Qatar is set to witness an increase in the construction of new malls, hotels and mixed used developments including Lusail Smart City over the next few years.

In addition, consultants for QRail have started working on the integration of space and parking (park & ride) before tendering out for contracting in the next year.

There are also legacy plans for the stadiums, which all involve potential smart parking investments, they added.

Qatar to float tenders for airport expansion in 2017

Qatar has approved plans for the expansion of the new Hamad International Airport (HIA) in capital Doha that will help boost its ultimate capacity to more than 65 million passengers, said a report.

The tendering process for the IHA project, which is the third phase of its development, will start this year, reported the Peninsula, citing a top aviation official.

Akbar Al Baker, the group chief executive of Qatar Airways, the operating airline of the IHA airport, said the design for the expansion of the airport has already been completed.

A new steering committee has been formulated under the chairmanship of Abdullah bin Nasser Turki Al Subae, the chairman of Civil Aviation Authority, with Al Baker as his deputy.

On the project budget, Al Baker said: "It will be of the same capacity but there is a new steering committee to decide on the budget as of now."

"The committee will announced the tender and follow all the due process inviting internationally contracted parties to take part," he added.

New cinema to open in Msheireb Downtown Doha this year

Qatar residents living near the Msheireb Downtown Doha development will see a new six-screen cinema open in the neighborhood this year, Novo Cinemas has announced.

The cinema will include regular and "7-Star" screens that have VIP services and reclining seats. It will be located inside Msheireb's The Galleria shopping center.

That mall is still under construction, but when completed will have 100 stores. It will include an Al Meera supermarket and a children's entertainment zone, Msheireb said earlier this month.

Novo already operates at the Pearl-Qatar, 01 Mall in Abu Hamour and recently opened a 19-screen complex at the new Mall of Qatar.

Msheireb's progress

The QR20 billion Msheireb project is still under construction and has seen some delays.

Last fall, Msheireb Properties CEO Abdullah Hassan al-Mehshadi said work on the first three phases of the project is "80 percent complete."

He added that the company is working with Qatar Rail on the fourth and final phase.

So far, the development houses a museum that opened last year and one school - Qatar Academy Msheireb.

A mosque is also occasionally open to the public during Eid prayers.

Ashghal to overhaul busy stretch of road connecting C-Ring and D-Ring

A months-long construction project is expected to begin today on a busy road in New Salata, Qatar's public works authority has announced.

The work is taking place on Ali Bin Abi Talib St., which runs parallel to Salwa Road and connects C-Ring and D-Ring roads.

Lane closures and some diversions will be in place over the weekend, and the redevelopment project will last until the end of this year.

The work is part of a larger project to boost capacity on Qatar's roads.

As part of phase I, the Al Maahed and Al Qafila roundabouts will be converted into signal-controlled intersections.

The street is also being widened to include three lanes and a service road in each direction.

What to know

While this takes place, two lanes will remain open to traffic in each direction on the street.

But the right lanes will be closed for those heading toward Al Maahed St. from Ali Bin Abi Talib St. and for motorists who want to turn left onto Al Maheed St.

Instead, commuters can use Al Qafila Roundabout.

Meanwhile, the right lane will be closed for those heading toward Al Qafila St., though access roads to residential buildings and businesses will remain open.

Part of the overhaul also includes expanding Al Maheed and Al Qafila streets so that there are two lanes in each direction.

Infrastructure development such as installing a stormwater drainage network, street lighting and landscaping is also planned.

Motorists are advised to follow the speed limits set in the area as well as signboards explaining the diversions.

Majid Al Futtaim to set up 'green' shopping mall in UAE

Majid Al Futtaim, a leading retail and leisure pioneer in the region, plans to set up a new Dh300-million ($82 million) shopping destination in the heart of Masdar City, one of the world's most sustainable urban developments, in Abu Dhabi.

The flagship sustainable urban facility located next to Abu Dhabi International Airport is being developed by top UAE renewable energy company Masdar.

The "My City Centre Masdar" mall will feature 60 outlets spread across 18,000 sq m of gross leasable area (GLA) including a 5,760-sq-m Carrefour Hypermarket, a Magic Planet family entertainment centre, a City Centre Clinic to provide community-focused healthcare services, and convenient dining options for both residents and professionals within Masdar City, said a statement from Majid Al Futtaim.

Set to open by the end of 2018, My City Centre Masdar will deliver a convenient, neighbourhood retail experience which meets the daily shopping needs of more than 75,000 estimated consumers in surrounding areas, it stated.

It will have easy access to adjacent developments and connectivity to planned smart public transport options including buses, light rail transit (LRT) lines, Group Rapid Transit (GRT) vehicles and the metro network, the retail pioneer added.

Today around 2,000 people work at Masdar City and its residential population is expected to exceed 3,500 people within the next two to three years.

Around 35 per cent of the city's planned built-up area will be completed over the next five years and nearly 30 per cent has already been committed to, including private homes, schools, hotels and additional office space, said the statement.

Up to 40,000 residents and 50,000 workers and students will be based at Masdar City by 2030, it added.

Speaking at the launch, Ghaith Shocair, the chief executive (shopping malls) at Majid Al Futtaim Properties, said: "We are proud to announce the development of My City Centre Masdar, which promises to create great moments for everyone, everyday, for communities living and working in Masdar City. We are honoured to partner with Masdar City and salute their vision which is aligned with Majid Al Futtaim's commitment to sustainability."

The one-level mall, to be constructed using Majid Al Futtaim's international sustainability standards, will have shaded parking for 430 vehicles on its rooftop through the use of photovoltaic panels, with My City Centre Masdar's energy and water consumption targeted to be 40 per cent lower than comparable buildings, in line with Masdar City's eco-friendly strategy.

"The mall will aim to achieve an Estidama Three Pearl rating, which is the equivalent of Leed Gold building status for sustainability," he stated.

Yousef Baselaib, the executive director (sustainable real estate) at Masdar City, said the development offers a 'greenprint' for the future, embracing economic, social and environmental principles of sustainability.

"The new mall is a testament to the emergence of Masdar City as a compelling destination for residents, business tenants and visitors," noted Baselaib.

"We are proud to be collaborating with Majid Al Futtaim Properties as part of our ambitious plans to deliver world-class retail, residential, commercial and hospitality projects at Masdar City. With several initiatives already well under way, we are looking forward to welcoming a growing number of visitors and businesses to the city," he stated.

"Ease of accessibility is vitally important for My City Centre Masdar, which will be served by integrated transport links, including an Abu Dhabi Metro line running along the main boulevard with a station situated next to the mall, within easy walking distance," he said.

With this launch, Majid Al Futtaim continues its expansion and enters Abu Dhabi's shopping mall landscape, as part of its strategy to boost its total investment in the UAE by Dh30 billion ($8.16 billion) by 2026, taking its total investment to Dh48 billion ($13 billion), said the company in a statement.

In addition to Abu Dhabi and Sharjah, the company is currently building new malls in Oman, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt, while redeveloping and expanding a number of its 20 existing retail and leisure destinations.- TradeArabia News Service

Artar's Dubai project on track for 2018 completion

Artar Real Estate Development, a leading Saudi-based group, said its work on its Mada Residences project in Downtown Dubai, is going as per schedule for completion in the second quarter of 2018, with a topping out ceremony likely to take place next month.

Backed by 50 years of regional experience, Artar picked its Mada Residences location seeing Dubai's Downtown district as one of the world's prime central city locations for investment and living, said it top official.

It boasts a superior location in Downtown Dubai, Burj Khalifa District with easy access that minimises traffic hassles. Destinations such as DIFC (Dubai International Financial Centre), the expanded City Walk Mall and Jumeirah are easily accessible.

"Prime-location projects such as ours position investors strategically for long-term growth. Current selling prices are close to construction costs and I can't think of a better time to buy. You get great value for money right now," remarked Okbah Abdulkarim, the chief operating officer.

"We are just a one-minute walk to The Dubai Mall Extension, two minutes from Business Bay Marina, the Yacht Club, Promenade and an RTA Water Taxi Station. It is genuinely hard to think of a city with such a huge wealth of dining, entertainment, retail, leisure, cultural and other facilities in one location," he added.

According to him, the Dubai market is experiencing a period of healthy stabilisation paving the way for strong growth in the build-up to Expo 2020.

GCC investors, he stated, have not let regional economic concerns undermine their interests in Dubai residential property which is still seen as providing long-term financial security.

According to him, prime locations such as Dubai's Downtown district are particularly attractive for Saudi and other GCC investors who want the best of both traditional and multicultural worlds.

"We have not experienced reduced enquiries due to oil prices as our property, unlike others in Downtown, appeals to a wide range of end-users and investors. We are not reliant on the type of buyers affected by the drop in oil revenue," observed Abdulkarim.

"Dubai remains an appealing investment destination for regional investors due to its central location, shared religious and cultural values and cosmopolitan lifestyle, world-class infrastructure and a broad range of facilities for businesses and tourists," he explained.

"We feel that in early 2018 Downtown in particular will see strong demand from the usual GCC investors as we approach the reality of Expo 2020," he added.- TradeArabia News Service

With this acquisition, Tabreed's portfolio has risen to 71 district cooling plants throughout the GCC, said the company in a statement.

The new plant will be owned by Prime District Cooling (Prime), a special-purpose vehicle set up by Tabreed and ICT as JV partners to acquire the plant.

Under the new arrangement, Tabreed will own a 75 per cent share in Prime while ICT will hold the remaining 25 per cent share of the JV.

The district cooling plant provides cooling to ICT's Nation Towers development, located on the Abu Dhabi Corniche which is considered one of the most prominent landmarks on the UAE capital city's skyline.

We look forward to working with ICT on this venture and growing our portfolio of customers that we support across the region," he added.

The acquisition has been mainly funded by a Dh80-million ($21.8 million), 15-year non-recourse project finance loan from First Gulf Bank, Abu Dhabi.

Hamad Abdullah Al Shamsi, the ICT's chief executive, said Tabreed has a long-standing track record of providing quality services to its clients and partners in the UAE and across the GCC.

It provides district cooling services to many of the region's landmark projects including all the developments on Abu Dhabi's Al Maryah Island, home to Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi and Abu Dhabi Global Market, and all the developments on Yas Island such as Ferrari World, Yas Marina Circuit and Yas Mall, in addition to other national and regional landmarks including Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Dubai Metro, Dubai Parks and Resorts, The Pearl island in Qatar, and an Aramco development project in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia.

"Our partnership enhances our ability to provide Tabreed's high quality and efficient district cooling services to the guests, residents and businesses of Nation Towers," he added.- TradeArabia News Service

Kuwait's expat tax move 'to hit property sector badly'

Kuwait's real estate sector, especially the investment and commercial segments, will be severely affected if the government goes ahead with its decision to impose taxes and increase fees on expatriates, said a report.

The negative impact on the entire real estate sector especially the investment segment will be massive if the recent statements issued against expatriates are transformed into decisions, reported Arab Times, citing a top industry expert.

"About 90 per cent of the flats in Kuwait are rented out to expatriates; therefore, any actions that could lead to a mass exodus of expatriates will hit the sector very badly," stated Abdulrahman Al Habib, the head of the Real Estate Brokers Association.  

Al Shabib Real Estate Group chairman Bader Al Shabib said rents of most of the flats in Kuwait are likely to fall 13 per cent this year, since many expatriates have already taken steps to send their families back to their home countries.

In such a scenario, the real estate sector will be facing a serious problem this summer, he added.

Oman to charge new air passenger 'security fee'

Oman will start charging $2.56 (OMR 1) per passenger as "security fee" from January 1, increasing total airport taxes by 10 percent in less than six months to $28.59 (OMR 11), according to a news report.

The country increased its airport tax from $20.79 (OMR 8) to $25.98 (OMR 10), with effect from July 1 2016.

The new charge will be included in the ticket cost and apply to "everyone buying an air ticket including transit passengers", Times of Oman reported.

Negotiations underway with Volkswagen for setting up factory in Tunisia

The President of the Tunisian Chamber of Industry and Commerce (AHK) Raouf Ben Debba announced on Friday in Tunis that Tunisia is in advanced negotiations with the German car factory "Volswagen", with a view to achieving a unit in Tunisia destined totally for export.

He told TAP, on the sidelines of a news conference on a study on automotive components in Tunisia, that a Tunisian delegation composed of representatives of the AHK and businessmen will travel with Prime Minister Youssef Chahed in Berlin for further discussion on this subject.

The visit by German Chancellor Angela Merkel to Tunisia next March will be an occasion to decide on the installation of Volswagen in Tunisia after having become aware of the political climate in the country, according to Ben Debba.

He said that consultations with the German car manufacturing giant started before the revolution and then stopped, following events in the country after 2011.

Negotiations resumed, he said, after the International Conference on Investment 2020 was held in Tunis on November 29 and 30, 2016.

"We have echoes confirming the firm intention of the German industrialist to invest in Tunisia, but the latter wants to know more about the advantages it can benefit, especially tax exemptions" added Ben Debba.

He considers, however, that the 10-year exemption period is insufficient and could block this operation, emphasising the need to amend certain sections of the Investment Law in order to attract not only in the automotive industry but also in other promising sectors.

Ben Debba stressed that officials and members of the House of the People's Representatives (HPR) must understand the situation, as the German investor is planning to set up a fully export-oriented car manufacturing unit. Investment in the country will last for decades.

Tunisia, he said, has traditions in the automotive components industry with 230 industrial units, the majority of which are foreign, adding that this sector achieves an integration rate of about 40%.
