The catering business is a major part of DAMAC Group operations as it serves both as a reminder of Hussain Sajwani’s initial business activity and making of important friends in high places on an international scale. He is utilizing his great skills again as DAMAC prepares to take advantage of the recovery in UAE property prices.
Hussain Sajwani’s charitable nature led him to give two million to a campaign meant to dress deprived kids around the globe. This Ramadan initiative was pioneered by the vice president and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. This contribution was made in respect to the company’s tradition of supporting the Dubai government’s attempt to better the living conditions of its people.
Hussain Sajwani is interested in enhancing his business, and he intends on doing so by forming a business alliance with Donald Trump’s real estate firm, the Trump Organization. The two have previously joined forces on the Trump International Golf Club, where they made huge profits of approximately $2 billion from luxurious villas in sales.
Hussain Sajwani says that his involvement with the Trumps is very beneficial and believes that their new alliance will enable him to expand, grow or maintain their business relationship.
