The Abu Dhabi emirate plans to set up three industrial parks that are expected to provide about 93,000 job opportunities when completed, Abu Dhabi-based Al Ittihad daily reports Monday citing an official.
Abu Dhabi’s Higher Corp. for Specialized Economic Zones, or ZonesCorp, is currently carrying out studies about these industrial cities whose infrastructure is expected to be completed in 2015, Mohamed Al Qamzi, ZonesCorp’s chief executive, told the paper.
Two of the industrial parks will be located in the western part of the Abu Dhabi emirate, one in Ruwais and the other in Zayed City, the daily says quoting Qamzi.
The industrial city in Ruwais will cover an area of 14 square kilometers and will target the manufacture of plastics, petrochemicals, construction materials, and chemicals in addition to providing logistics services, he told Al Ittihad.
The Zayed City’s industrial park will cover an area of 2.4 kilometers and aims to attract projects in the sectors of oil and gas field services as well as logistics services, Qamzi said according to the newspaper.
The third industrial park will be located in the Mussafah area and will house auto repair shops, maintenance centers for heavy machinery and other related facilities, Qamzi told the daily.
