Mohamed Al Khadar Al Ahmed, CEO of the Khalifa Economic Zones Abu Dhabi (KEZAD) Group, has stated that the economic cities and free zones of the Abu Dhabi Ports Group have helped achieve record results for the group in terms of leasing new land.

In the first half of 2022, the land leased by the group was estimated to total 3.9 square kilometres, underscoring the growing demand for integrated industrial and trade centres, especially in Abu Dhabi.

In his statements, Al Ahmed noted that the Abu Dhabi Ports Group is keen to ensure the consistency of its long-term strategy for Abu Dhabi and the UAE, in general. It is keen to help make the emirate an international trade, industry and logistics centre.

Under this framework, KEZAD was launched as one of the group’s economic cities and free zones to provide a wide array of services and business models. It will enable companies to achieve growth, aligning with the UAE’s leadership’s vision and Abu Dhabi’s industrial strategy, he added.

KEZAD has over 1,750 companies in 17 sectors, which include pharmaceuticals, minerals, vehicles, plastics, construction materials, recycling, food, agricultural technology, retail, logistics, advanced technology, clean energy, life science, oil and gas and specialist chemicals, he further added.

This step follows the successful merger of KEZAD and ZonesCorp, under the umbrella of the former entity. This includes 17 industrial centres on an area measuring 550 square kilometres, to meet the needs of a wide variety of key sectors and establish a diverse portfolio of services and products, Al Ahmed said.
