ABU DHABI, April 8, 2017

Indian Ambassador to the UAE Navdeep Singh Suri and first secretary Dinesh Kumar, accompanied by ZonesCorp director general Saeed Eisa Al Khyeli last week took a tour of two workers residential cities in Mussafah, and the Industrial City of Abu Dhabi (ICAD II).

The delegation visited Workers Village and ICAD Residential City (IRC). During the tour, the group visited the living quarters and extensive catering facilities.

Following the tours, Ambassador Suri addressed a large group of Indian workers. First Secretary Kumar highlighted how the Indian Resource Centre provides support on personal issues, legal advice, emigrant issues and financial advice for the Indian community working in the capital.

The ambassador and first secretary then met personally with many of the workers to hear about their experiences.

Suri said: “I am extremely impressed with the facilities here, a lot of thought has gone into the construction and management of the two residential complexes. I also am very encouraged by how professional the teams managing these complexes are and they are to be commended for the high standards being maintained throughout.”

Al Khyeli commented: “We maintain the highest standards at ZonesCorp. In line with the Abu Dhabi Vision 2030 we want to help build a sustainable and globally integrated industrial manufacturing sector in Abu Dhabi and therefore we need to ensure that all workers who are a key part of this are protected. As the supervisory body for Worker Residential Cities in the industrial zones, it is crucial to ensure that we find reliable partners who will manage the cities safely, responsibly and to the highest standards.”

Workers Village is composed of 43 multiple floor buildings, with a capacity of 25,000 people and built in accordance with the highest international standards to host a workforce of different categories. The project features integrated modern facilities offering amenities such as catering, recreation centres, sports complex, healthcare and many more.
