It has given all of us much more than we have ever dreamed of and a special thanks go to the amazing leadership of the country, especially His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai."
"Even when the pandemic hit the world badly, we at VK Group stood strong as one family. Where so many people were losing business and jobs, we were blessed to have the strength to sustain with zero job loss and no salary cuts for anyone. The credit for this goes to the wonderful-experienced leaders, managers, supervisors and staff, we have in VK Group," he concluded.
