“With the construction industry benefiting from growing tourism as well as the UAE’s development into a regional logistics center and a hub for renewable energies and green technologies along with Dubai hosting Expo 2020, we foresee a great growth potential for our operations in UAE and region.  Sika’s 2020 growth target and strategy fall well in line with UAE’s vision and plans that will provide a further boost to the construction sector with estimates of growth at close to 7% for the next few years,” added Schädler.
