These will air on the channel in Europe, South Asia, the Middle East and Asia Pacific later in the year.
BBC World’s Regional Director MENA & Pakistan Hani Soubra says: “The fact that Nakheel has chosen BBC World for their campaign is testament to the credibility of the channel. We are delighted to be working with Nakheel and look forward to a long and prosperous relationship.”

“The aim of these three profiles is to highlight Nakheel’s role in the ongoing transformation of Dubai to an international audience.
