DEAL SIGNED JUST TWO WEEKS AGO

Abu Dhabi royal scraps giant Pakistan project

Abu Dhabi, February 26, 2013

 

Abu Dhabi royal Sheikh Nahayan bin Mubarak al-Nahayan has cancelled a tentative agreement with a Pakistani businessman that envisioned spending $45 billion on a real estate project in Karachi over 15 years -- a cancellation that comes less than two weeks after the deal was signed.
 
No reason was given for the cancellation in a statement by the Abu Dhabi Group, which Sheikh Nahayan chairs.
 
The memorandum of understanding with Pakistani real estate tycoon Malik Riaz Hussain to build residential properties on an island had been touted in Pakistan as the country's biggest ever foreign investment.
 
The statement received by Reuters said no financial obligation or commitment had been assumed by the sheikh, the conglomerate, or his privately owned construction firm Dhabi Contracting.
 
"It is...unfortunate that discussions between the parties could not reach any conclusion and the Memorandum of Understanding has been cancelled," it said.
