Tarek Hamdy, CEO, EIGHTEEN said, “The Eighteen CEO Summit is a wonderful platform for sharing business experiences and exchanging ideas. Eighteen, as a project of international standards, is a step towards building a greater Pakistan by redefining the lifestyle of people. Our investment in the country, inclusion of local stakeholders, and creation of employment opportunities will contribute to the national economy in a major way”

He further discussed how Eighteen will ensure an environmental-friendly lifestyle for its residents, adding “We are building on only 16 percent of the land, including residential and commercial, in order to preserve the fauna of the landscape. We are adopting new water solutions keeping in view the existing water crisis and will also be generating our own power. Eighteen has adopted lean construction techniques that ensure minimal wastage and has also provided for smart home solutions rendering power efficiency. These measures stand in line with our “Go Green” policies and are tailored towards preserving and protecting the environment”

The first phase of development is set to be completed in December 2020. Mr. Hamdy claimed that the government has been helpful towards the growth of the real estate project but further facilitation is required. He stressed that Pakistan is of great value to Ora Developers as the company first arrived in the country over 20 years ago by the way of the telecom sector.

The members of the audience, being business professionals, were given a chance to benefit from the experience of the leaders in this field. Following the conference, the latest edition of the ‘100 performing CEOs & Companies of Pakistan 2019’ was distributed to more than 500 CEOs, business leaders, political officials and foreign delegates who attended this year’s event.
