As the RP Group expands its operations across the region, the company said Ajman is "increasingly becoming attractive to first-time home owners and investors".For all the latest construction news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
