The agreement covers the shipping of strategic construction supplies, including containers, machinery, raw materials and equipment, to support the construction of Hayat Biotech’s global biopharmaceutical manufacturing facilities.

The facilities – once complete – will produce a number of vital biopharmaceutical products, including the Hayat-Vax vaccine, the first indigenously produced Covid-19 vaccine in the UAE and Arab world.
