DUBAI, 4th July, 2018 (WAM) — Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of Roads and Transport Authority, RTA, in Dubai, has received in his office a visiting delegation from the Republic of Angola headed by Ana de Carvalho, Minister of Territorial Planning and Habitation.

The meeting discussed ways and means of enhancing cooperation and exchanging expertise between RTA and its counterpart in Angola. The delegation also reviewed roads, infrastructure projects and transit systems to be undertaken by RTA in the foreseeable future.

Starting the meeting, Al Tayer welcomed the Angolan Minister and briefed her on the current and future projects RTA will undertake to improve the infrastructure of road networks and transit systems. Such projects are required to cope with the sustained growth rate seen by Dubai, and fulfil the requirements of Dubai hosting Expo 2020, noted Al Tayer.

Carvalho was impressed by the upswing witnessed by the UAE, particularly the improved infrastructure of road and transport networks. “We look forward to enhance cooperation between the two parties. We intend to send a technical team for training at RTA, and familiarise with the technical details of road construction projects and improved public transit systems, which are crucial for the daily mobility of people,” she noted.
