The UAE government is encouraging Emiratis to get into the agricultural business as part of its food security plans (e.g. free water for sustainable farming projects: http://www.gulftoday.ae/portal/f62eebf8-ec97-4bf4-9a73-6430e815bc84.aspx).
In the restaurant business, we have seen 2 or 3 farm-to-table concepts spring up in Dubai.
What if farmers could get crop & livestock Takaful insurance ? I beleive this has evolved in Europe to a point where animals have sensors on them and their vitals decide premiums :)
This would definitely benefit Emirati farmers in Al Ain ,etc.
I would like to suggest a medical takaful insurance plan that I can buy here and cover health insurance for my folks back home.
Investing with a trustworthy bank like ADIB would give me peace of mind in addition to the fact that I don't have to go back to my home country (Pakistan) and run around to get medical insurance for my parents .
