Mr Mohammad Ashfaq, Geant Group Head, Business Developments, described the new partnership as “a win-win situation for both Geant and Nakheel. Through Dragon Mart we can further enhance our savy managerial skills and operation and capitalise on our thorough understanding of the local market’s needs by offering diverse and wide-ranging merchandize and products,” he said.

Dragon Mart Phase II, newly under development by Nakheel, will be a unique project in terms of concept and design, with a large food court and a terraced food and beverage strip overlooking a unique outdoor plaza to accommodate a variety of functions and activities.  There will also be various department stores in addition to cinemas and hotels adjacent to Dragon Mart, providing shoppers and visitors even more entertainment and dining options.
