More than 150,000 jobs could be created thanks to a deal signed between Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD) and 50 local and international companies.

Part of the Abu Dhabi Ports Company’s (ADPC) AED26.5bn (S$7.2bn) Khalifa Port project, KIZAD has agreed deals with 50 companies, which will not only provide a huge number of jobs, but also potentially contribute to about fifteen percent of Abu Dhabi’s non-oil GDP by 2030.
