Najibi’s executive chairman Talal Najibi said: "This project marks a major milestone in Najibi's strategy to diversify its interests and investments.
"We feel this is the right time to invest in Australia. The Sunshine Coast, Queensland is rife with opportunities, and we are confident that this project will be extremely successful."
