DUBAI, March 6 (Reuters) - Mohamed Alabbar, chairman of Dubai's largest listed real estate developer Emaar Properties , said on Monday he was hoping for a better year after a "tough" 2016.
Emaar, which built the world's biggest tower, the Burj Khalifa, has an $11.4 billion backlog of projects, he said at an investment conference in Dubai.
Alabbar also said he was "cautiously optimistic" about Dubai's property market in years ahead. (Reporting by Tom Arnold; Writing by Alexander Cornwell; Editing by Andrew Torchia)
