Dubai Government-owned property developer Nakheel may cut up to 500 jobs due to the effects of the financial crisis, reported UK-daily The Independent on Monday.
An announcement on the redundancies is expected shortly, claims the paper, without revealing its source.
“Nakheel continues to evaluate its projects and commitments against market conditions and opportunities. In doing so, the company also evaluates its cost base and efficiencies,” Nakheel said in an emailed statement to Zawya Dow Jones on Monday.
Nakheel is due to pay a $3.52 billion Islamic bond that matures in December.
