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.
