UAE: ADPC Holds Information Meeting with Marfa Port Shareholders

ADPC Holds Information Meeting with Marfa Port Shareholders

ADPC has held an information-sharing meeting with shareholders in Marfa, as it prepares to develop the first phase of the port.

In a special meeting held at Marfa Hotel, ADPC’s Vice President of Project Development, Waleed Al Tamimi discussed the plans with important stakeholders, notably local commercial fishermen, lead by Jumaa Bin Hathboor.

At the meeting, ADPC explored the feedback from stakeholders into the plans to develop the port, fishing and recreational facilities. Parsons International Ltd has been awarded the contract for consultancy services for the project.

Its scope includes the redesign of the port, so that it can accommodate more than two hundred boats, with an additional boost for water recreational activities.

The meeting was attended by Marfa fishermen, ADPC figureheads, Abu Dhabi’s Urban Planning Council, the Western Region Development Council and Parsons International.

Mr Al Tamimi said: “We were delighted with the clear messages coming from the Marfa fishing delegation. We were pleased to listen to their suggestions, and that is our job – to work with the local community and bring improvements for them as well as the other ports we manage in the Western Region.”

Jumaa Bin Hathboor saw the meeting as highly successful: “We’d like to thank ADPC for listening to our suggestions. It’s clear that quite a lot of work needs to be done to improve fishing facilities and with their help, we will see changes coming in the near future. I welcome more meetings with ADPC and look forward to seeing work start.”
