The UAE and Saudi Arabia have jointly reviewed the latest prospects of co-operation in the field of infrastructure development.

This came during the five-day meetings held recently by the joint project teams of the Emirati-Saudi Coordination Council in Riyadh where a summary of the projects charted by the Saudi Ministry of Infrastructure Development, and the efforts of both countries to strengthen their infrastructure, primarily road safety, were thoroughly discussed.

The UAE delegation to the meeting visited several infrastructure project sites in Saudi Arabia, along with the Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organisation (SASO) and the National Road Safety Center, and both sides agreed to launch joint schemes and initiatives to ensure social welfare for their two peoples.

The delegation was headed by Engineer Ibrahim Al Wahabi, Assistant Under-Secretary of the Ministry of Infrastructure Development for the Project Implementation Sector, and included representatives of relevant authorities.

Al Wahabi highlighted the importance of such visits in expediting knowledge transfer and exchange of best practices toward achieving the two nations' vision on sustainable development.

Deputy Minister of Transport for Roads Affairs, Engineer Bader Al Dalami, shared identical views with the UAE official and underlined the importance of doubling efforts to ensure optimum execution of infrastructure development projects as per latest international standards.
