DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Dubai’s government says struggling state conglomerate Dubai World has signed a final agreement with creditors to restructure billions of dollars in debt.
The emirate’s media office announced the signing of the deal involving about 80 creditors Wednesday. It formalizes a tentative agreement reached last year.
Dubai World secured full creditor support for its $24.9 billion debt restructuring plan in October.
The conglomerate is the parent of several companies, including global port operator DP World and Nakheel, the builder of manmade islands off Dubai’s coast.
