University Students Visit Khalifa Port

The Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC) took part in celebrating the festive occasion of the UAE’s 40th National Day by organizing a number of activities and events at the company’s headquarters, its state of the art port project Khalifa Port and at its offices located in the Khalifa Industrial Zone (Kizad) in Taweelah.

Among the activities that took place was an initiative titled “A Day in the Future” whereby ADPC invited a number of university students across the country to visit the company along with its flagship projects. The aim of the initiative was to allow students from an array of academic disciplines to gain exposure to the various work opportunities that the company can offer, allowing National students to gain insights to the many exciting career opportunities that currently exist within ADPC that will allow them to serve their community and contribute to the country’s future economic development and diversification.

The massive scale of projects such as Khalifa Port and Kizad offer students jobs across various sectors such as engineering, finance, computer and operations management of marine and land. In addition students were informed that such projects are long term and will continue for decades to contribute to the sustainability of the country, with a prime example being the Mina Zayed which is currently 39 years old and truly symbolizes the Union.

Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Khaleefa Al Romaithi, Senior Manager of Public Affairs at ADPC said:” ADPC’s aim through such an initiative is to expose National students to the vast amount of career opportunities that Khalifa Port and Kizad will be able to offer them and to allow them to see the extent these projects will contribute to the development of this nation. ADPC is committed to Emaritization as it firmly believes that this country’s citizens will be essential in maintaining the progress that this country has witnessed so far.”
