The key sectors such as real estate, travel, tourism, hospitality, healthcare, and education are equally poised for future growth. Keeping this in mind, there's an overwhelming support from the government as the setting up of Dubai's Islamic Economic Development Center has just shown, he said. However, there are challenges like skill, efficiency and investor confidence. And most of these challenges can be overcome just by pure innovation, Chilwan believes.
