The UAE's crucial roles in the new Islamic Museum of Australia
by Saeed Saeed
Distance is no barrier when it comes to achieving a dream.
When the Islamic Museum of Australia founders Moustafa and Maysaa Fahour relocated their family to Dubai in 2012 – the former accepted a job offer from the construction company Leighton Holdings – they knew the quest to build the facility wouldn't be abandoned; it merely required working across multiple time zones.
What they didn't expect, however, was the UAE being an ideal place to design and execute a 10 million Australian dollar (Dh33million) project more than 11,000 kilometres away from Melbourne.
