(Fujairah) – Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, approved projects for the Ministry of Infrastructure Development, worth AED7 billion, during a field visit to the East Coast.
The projects include approvals for housing aid, the building of new residential complexes, roads, schools, health centres and government buildings. AED5 billion have been allocated until 2021 for citizen accommodation projects that will benefit 42,000 people over the next five years. Sheikh Mohammed also visited a number of road projects and approved an additional AED1.5 billion for the ministry’s projects.
Speaking on the occasion, Sheikh Mohammed said, “The government will closely follow-up on all sectors and infrastructure is at the top of its agenda to provide a decent living condition for citizens.”
The Vice President also met with five ministers during his visit to inspect projects and review future plans. He then visited a school in Kalba, and youth sports complex in Fujairah and ordered the establishment of a similar complex in Ras al-Khaimah.
Sheikh Mohammed also approved the extension of Emirates Road leading to the Ras al-Khaimah ring road and the Khatm Al Milaha road reaching Fujairah.
He visited a new design model for public schools in the country, equipped with sophisticated laboratories, learning centres, and modern facilities, where he attended a reading session with the students. He was also shown new education plans which will see the incorporation of programming materials and innovation skills in the curriculum for the coming years.
Sheikh Mohammed said, “Development must be achieved comprehensively and be balanced across all regions of the country. All regions represent a priority for President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.”
“Housing is an essential service, and is every citizen’s right, and a priority for the government. We do not accept any delay or disruption in providing residential assistance to citizens,” he added.
