Abu Dhabi has launched projects worth over $4.6m (AED17m) in Al Ain, including the construction of community markets across the city to meet growing population needs for diverse commercial services.

The move comes as part of Abu Dhabi government's comprehensive sustainable development strategy, reported the UAE state news agency WAM.

The scope of work includes renovation of public utilities and launching of new service projects needed by the community in line with the municipal rules and regulations.

The Abu Dhabi government will also set up an integrated, large-scale network of community projects that include entertainment and service facilities patterned after the latest world design standards, stated the report, citing a senior official.

"The projects launched by Al Ain City Municipality covers the design, construction and operation of community market projects in Al Yahar North and Asharej areas," revealed Badr Al Ammari, the supervisor general of Al Ain City Municipality Investment Bureau.

The project, which falls within the efforts made to boost the private sector's role in the country's overall development drive, was initially launched in June 2017 and the bidding process would continue until the end of August, he added.
