Sterilisation of roads at free zone has covered more than 35km
Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZA) has disinfected an area of around 3.3 million square metres – the equivalent of 462 football fields - in preparation to welcome back employees from over 8,000 companies.
The disinfection programme included all internal fumigation and sterilisation of buildings, while the road disinfection campaign covered more than 35km.
It started in March and is still ongoing, covering all office and accommodation buildings, security gates and commercial centres, as well as the main roads in Jafza.
Mohammed Al Muallem, CEO and managing director of DP World, UAE region and CEO of JAFZA, said: "As the world is working to cope with Covid-19, Dubai will play a pivotal role in the post-pandemic economy recovery thanks to its state-of-art infrastructure, effective resilience strategies and its ability to efficiently deal with all circumstances.
“In line with Dubai Government’s directives for private sector businesses to operate at 100 percent capacity while Dubai government employees would fully resume working at their offices from June 14, we are ready for the immediate return of JAFZA companies to pursue normal operations."
JAFZA has attracted 23.9 percent of Dubai’s foreign direct investment sustaining more than 135,000 jobs.
