"The Binary agreement reflects our successful and continuous growth in this line of business and gives us cautious optimism about the construction industry outlook in the UAE.

The emphasis on regional diversification has proved to be highly strategic as DSC achieved tremendous progress particularly in Saudi Arabia and just recently through a major breakthrough into the Algerian market with a project valued at AED 845 million.
