Work is currently under way on 3,018 residential units being developed under the Sheikh Zayed Housing Programme
. These homes will be delivered between 2020 and 2022, said Suhail bin Mohammed Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy and Infrastructure.
Already five housing districts comprising 1,490 houses have been built under the scheme, stated Al Mazrouei, who is also the chairman of the board of directors of Sheikh Zayed Housing Programme.
The programme has contributed, since its establishment over 20 years ago, to the stability of 33,838 Emirati families, through offering housing support and constructing comprehensive housing districts, stated the minister.
It also achieved significant success in ensuring that the required specifications for citizens’ housing districts and the construction of sustainable housing are met, stated Al Mazrouei while giving his address on the occasion of World Habitat Day.
The United Nations had designated the first Monday of October of every year as World Habitat Day to reflect on the state of towns and cities and on the basic right of all to adequate shelter. This year it was celebrated under theme: Housing For All A Better Urban Future.
Al Mazrouei said that UAE government, since its establishment in 1971, had prioritised the housing sector to provide citizens with suitable housing that would help achieve their family stability, happiness and quality of life, which are key pillars of the UAE Vision 2021.
The minister also highlighted the key role played by the private sector in strengthening the housing system in the UAE.
"Housing institutions have exerted significant efforts to develop model houses built according to modern global and sustainable standards, which will fulfil the ambitions of citizens and the needs of Emirati families," observed Al Mazrouei.
"Our goals include keeping pace with the UAE Government’s directives to prepare for the next fifty years, by offering various housing options for future Emirati generations," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
