Al Masaood Group Visit

Abu Dhabi (UAE), XXX, 2016: As part of its comprehensive programme of visits to its investors, a delegation representing the different departments from the Higher Corporation for Specialized Economic Zones (ZonesCorp), headed by H.E. Saeed Eisa Mohammed Al Khyeli, Director General of ZonesCorp visited the headquarters of the Al Masaood Group. The delegation was received by H.E. Abdulla Al Masaood, Chairman of Al Masaood Group, alongside a number of other senior Al Masaood Group officials.

The visit comes as part of the "Tawasol” program, which ZonesCorp adopted in 2015 as a way to improve customer satisfaction and help boost investor performance. This initiative is part of an enhancement program designed to help ZonesCorp identify and prioritise investor’s needs and address any issues. More widely, the initiative will also help ZonesCorp to assess direct and indirect factors affecting investment in the industrial sector in Abu Dhabi and present effective long term solutions.

The visit served to strengthen bilateral relations between the two organisations and discuss potential investment and enhancement opportunities. The visit comes as part of a rolling program of visits to factories to meet with investors across its acreage that was started in 2015. During the visits the ZonesCorp team examines investors’ working environment, trade and operational performance and relationships with government agencies. The programme has been a great success so far as it gives investors a forum to discuss their ambitions and highlight any issues in an open and transparent manner. 

H.E. Saeed Eisa Mohammed Al Khyeli, Director General of ZonesCorp, said: “The Tawasol initiative is an essential part of the service we provide to our investors. Our aim is to build a world class industrial sector in Abu Dhabi and as part of this we need to help our investors achieve their full potential. The scheme is designed to enhance communication between all parties, particularly government agencies, and the data gathered as part of this initiative will enable us to present our investors with viable ways of enhancing their businesses. Currently we are in in progress of signing the cooperation agreements that reflect the leading role that ZonesCorp plays in the construction and development of the industrial sector in Abu Dhabi and the region. Al Masaood Group is in a great position and is playing an active and vital role in strengthening the national economy. I would like to thank His Excellency Abdulla Al Masaood for his warm reception and we look forward to further cooperation in the future."

HE Abdulla Al Masaood, Chairman of Al Masaood Group, said: "The Higher Corporation for Specialized Economic Zones continues to contribute and support the economic wheel of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi through innovative initiatives and programs as well as up-to-date legislation which helps attracts investors and businessmen to Abu Dhabi from around the world.
