As for VW assembling cars in AD, I came to know that they assemble in Bosnia & Herzegovina; if they do there they might do it as well.

Abu Dhabi, Volkswagen in initial deal for spares unit

By Gulf News

Abu Dhabi: Abu Dhabi and Europe's largest carmaker, Volkswagen, reached an initial agreement yesterday to set up a holding company for investing in an automobiles spares plant in Abu Dhabi, with an eventual investment target of Dh5 billion.

The first phase envisages investment of Dh2 billion.

After lengthy talks in Abu Dhabi, the two sides agreed to create a joint investment company that will establish a major car parts manufacturing plant in the emirate's burgeoning free industrial zone in Musaffah, just outside Abu Dhabi city.

Initial investment plans involve Dh2 billion ($545 million) in car and related industries early next year, to rise to Dh5 billion ($1.36 billion) later.

"The new venture will be created soon and an official announcement will be made after all procedures for its establishment are completed," said Shaikh Hamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Department of Economy (DoE).

"This venture will set up a plant involving car assembly and manufacture of components involved in the auto industry... you can say this venture is a nucleus for the Abu Dhabi industrial zone which will also receive other carmakers. We are currently conducting negotiations with some other car manufacturers to attract their investment."

Speaking after talks with Andreas Deumeland, Volkswagen's corporate secretary and head of group planning, Shaikh Hamed said the agreement yesterday followed the April visit to Germany by Shaikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs and Deputy Prime Minister, during which he met Volkswagen's chairman and discussed cooperation.

But he did not say whether Abu Dhabi is still interested in acquiring a share in the German auto giant.

The new venture will be jointly owned by Volkswagen, the UAE Offset Co for Development, and the General Joint Stock Co, which is fully owned by Abu Dhabi Government and is affiliated to the General Industry Corp.

Sources close to the negotiations said the new venture would be officially announced in the next few weeks, including its capital, headquarters and statute.

They said such an agreement could lead to other deals between Abu Dhabi and Volkswagen in future and tempt more global carmakers to invest in the emirate.

"The raw materials which will be be used in the planned car plant in Musaffah are available in the region and the project will involve energy dependent type of industry," Shaikh Hamed said.

Abu Dhabi, which controls nearly 10 per cent of the world's oil wealth, has been locked in a drive to attract industrial capital within a long-term economic diversification programme.

The DoE expects at least Dh35 billion ($9.5 billion) in foreign investment to be pumped into its planned five industrial zones in the next 10 years.

whereas saudi arabia and iraq have high unemployment levels and need employers for their unskilled workers, i find it odd that abu dhabi is building these plants when the only ones to benefit from this are foreign labours.

dubai has found it's place to be a market hub in tourism and banking, while abudhabi doesn't seem to have a clue of what its doing.

Yeah, and I'm sure Western Companies would be happy to see their investment going in flames and turned to dust, and if their specialists send there, would ever survive.

Foreign investments are not reward for unemployment!

Help me, to helping you ... they say and the countries you mentioned are not capable to do that.

Zayed tours development projects in Abu Dhabi



President H.H Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan yesterday toured a number of development projects in Abu Dhabi. During the tour, Sheikh Zayed viewed the progress of work at the Emirates Conferences Palace. Work at the palace is nearing completion and the facility will be inaugurated soon for the 25fth Summit of the GCC leaders which will be held in Abu Dhabi in December. Other projects toured by Sheikh Zayed included the new Sheikh Zayed mosque, the Zayed Port and the Fishermen Association. The tour is part of Sheikh Zayed's keenness to get a first-hand view of the progress of various development projects. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)

Nobody can ever hold anything against Sheikh Zayed, if it weren't for him and the stability he's brought to the country, people like Mohamed bin Rashid would have never been so bold in dreaming up and realizing all these outrageous dreams. He is by far the most humble Arab leader and one of the most in the world. I've always loved him too.

The beauty of a building is from its looks and from somthing special inside such as the facilities and the internal decoration, the rest is as usual.

I'm quite confident that Emaar will build a supertall in Dubai Marina, and I'm guessing it's gonna be 1 Marina Place because I've seen other renderings of it and I think Krazy posted one or two recently.
