Lengthy list of projects approved in Abu Dhabi

Last month, a number of key healthcare and education projects were approved by H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi at an Executive Council meeting in Abu Dhabi. Fourteen new healthcare facilities and a world-class rehabilitation centre are on the cards, with plans for the Abu Dhabi Cleveland Clinic promising to provide supreme care in the areas of Cardiac, Digestive, Gastrointestinal, Neurological and Ophthalmological medicine.

In the education sector, the Executive Council approved 24 new schools and the refurbishment of 10 existing institutions. There are also plans to create accommodation units for teaching staff. The redesign and building of a new Al Ain National Museum was approved as was the development of a cultural Hilli site, destined to ‘significantly contribute to the historical material and cultural heritage of Abu Dhabi’.
