ABU DHABI, 19 days ago

Energy and infrastructure are the major factors spearheading UAE's economic growth and hence it is necessary to rally efforts and ensure the best utilisation of resources in post-Covid-19 era and protect the gains made by the country over the past years, said a senior minister.
Minister of Energy and Infrastructure Suhail bin Mohammed Al Mazrouei made the remarks as he visited  the ministry headquarters and the premises of the Sheikh Zayed Housing Programme, and the Federal Authority for Land and Maritime Transport where he held staff meetings to review the challenges the post-coronavirus era abounds in.
"These challenges carry along immense prospects of growth for the UAE over the coming 50 years, a new chapter in the country's sustainable development drive where no efforts can be spared to develop the energy and infrastructure sectors in a way that copes with the rapid and multifaceted challenges facing the cities of the future," he stated.
"Ensuring a brighter future for the energy and infrastructure sectors hinges on continued advanced rankings in the global competitiveness race, primarily in the Infrastructure and the Quality of Roads indices where securing an advanced position requires teamwork spirit, commitment to individual and corporate responsibilities and adopting an innovation-driven and knowledge -based approach toward besetting challenges," he added.
He underlined the paramount importance the government is directing to the energy, infrastructure, housing and land and maritime transport sectors, being key engines for the transformational development drive the country is embracing across all state sectors.-TradeArabia News Service
