Masdar and the Abu Dhabi Ports Company have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, to support the economic growth in Abu Dhabi and achieve the objectives of the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030.

The MoU was signed by Yousef Ahmed Baselaib, Masdar Executive Director of Sustainable Real Estate, and Captain Maktoum Al Hoqani, Chief Corporate Authority Officer, Abu Dhabi Ports, on the sidelines of the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, taking place this week at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.

Masdar and Abu Dhabi Ports, representing its subsidiaries, Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi, KIZAD, and the Abu Dhabi Free Zone, will collaborate to develop a framework that will allow investors in Abu Dhabi to expand their business operations across the zones under their management, while also reducing costs and increasing the competitive advantage of the emirate.

For his part, Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, Group CEO of Abu Dhabi Ports, said, "This MoU between two of Abu Dhabi’s premier organisations strengthens our collective drive towards making Abu Dhabi a leading trade and logistics facilitator in the region. Abu Dhabi Ports, and its key subsidiary KIZAD will continue to play a vital role in supporting the economic growth of the UAE by enabling trade and investment, as well as innovation and sustainability in the country through such partnerships."
