Al Shaibani added: “Under the agreement, Tilal Properties is offering two plots of land spanning 600,000 sq.ft. as part of its corporate social programme. The two plots are strategically located at the heart of the city adjacent to the exit and entry points so that work can start at any time as part of the development work of Tilal City. The move
emanates from our solid belief in the fundamental role played by education in driving the development process and ensuring social welfare and prosperity.”
