Ajman disinfects petrol stations on highways


Petrol stations are being disinfected on Ajman highways.

As part of the government’s continuous efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the country, the Ministry of Infrastructure Development has launched a drive to disinfect petrol stations located on the highways of the Emirate of Ajman.

Dr. Abdullah Bin Mohammed Belhaif Al Nuaimi, Minister of Infrastructure Development, on Wednesday was briefed via video-call on the Ministry’s efforts in cooperation with the National Sterilisation Team in Ajman.

The Ministry said that the “entrances and exits of petrol stations” are being targeted as part of the drive.

Al Nuaimi explained that the Ministry is working to support its partners around the country and ensure a high level of protection for all highway users.

Separately, Ajman University, AU, has become one of the first six higher education institutions in the world to receive global accreditation from the Quality Assurance Agency, QAA, UK’s independent body and a global leader in quality assurance for higher education.

The global accreditation, launched in November last year, is awarded to institutions that have passed the QAA’s rigorous International Quality Review, an independent peer review measuring global institutions against the 10 standards of the internationally respected European Standards and Guidelines (ESG) criteria.

Commenting on the achievement, Dr. Karim Seghir, AU Chancellor, said that Ajman University is now part of an elite group of global institutions to hold this prestigious status.

“In addition to being one of the first six in the world to hold QAA global accreditation, we are one of only three universities in the entire MENA region and the very first in the UAE,” he added.

By securing global accreditation with QAA, international institutions can clearly spotlight their quality standards internationally, he added.

“They can more easily open dialogue with institutions outside their domestic market.” 

For his part, Douglas Blackstock, QAA Chief Executive, commented, “This is a fantastic achievement for Ajman University,” demonstrating that they operate at the highest level of quality assurance.
