During the interview, all the presenters had their warm winter wear. Hussain Sajwani can never forget the day, he said while relaxing in a clubhouse at Damac Hills which is opposite the Trump Estate. During that winter Mr. Sajwani was addressing the World Economic Forum in Davos. Many people have always wondered why he does not keep warm when visiting other nations like London during winter, but Hussain said that he loves cold.


The interview though small it was important and it touched about his life and his participation in the family business while he was a small boy. During the interview, the now prominent business person in the world talked about how his father Ali Sajwani took him to his shop every day after school and he learned a lot. According to Hussain Sajwani, his father is probably the first United Emirate citizen to have visited China in 1965 for business. Sajwani attributes his current success in business from what he learned from his father, and he was quick to say that today he can easily adapt to the market. Forbes has listed Hussain Sajwani as the 10th richest Arab in the world. In 2007 his organization DAMAC Properties was listed as the fourth largest public firm.
