Abu Dhabi’s Higher Corporation for Specialised Economic Zones (ZonesCorp) is developing further major industrial estates, the MEED Abu Dhabi 2013 conference was told on 9 December.

Plans call for the development of the 16 square-kilometre (sq km) Industrial City of Abu Dhabi (ICAD) estate 4; a 20 sq-km industrial estate in Ruwais in the Western Region and a 3.5 sq-km estate in Madinat Zayed, also in the Western Region, said Zonescorp’s chief executive officer (CEO) Mohamed al-Qemzi. The final details of the ICAD 4 masterplan are being completed.

Zonescorp is continuing to develop its foreign worker housing complexes. The objective is to build 19 residential areas with a total of 315,000 beds, said Al-Qemzi.

ZonesCorp was created by the Abu Dhabi government in 2004, and is the the largest operator of purpose-built industrial zones in the UAE.
