His Excellency Hesham Abdullah Al Qassim, commented, “in an effort for Wasl to be part of the growth and development of the real estate sector in the emirate of Dubai, we have successfully implemented the electronic venture between the two systems that allows Wasl customers to register their Ejari contracts in any of the Wasl branches. This is both time and cost efficient for the community we serve – adding to customer satisfaction, because customers are a top priority.”
