Infrastructure projects worth Dhs1bn in Fujairah were approved by Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the UAE’s Vice-President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, on Tuesday.

He also approved the development of a residential complex worth Dhs400m in Khorfakkan, as well as plans to build schools, healthcare facilities, internal roads and community buildings along the UAE’s east coast.

Sheikh Mohammed announced the projects during a tour of the northern emirates, which he began last week.

“There is vast development potential in the UAE’s eastern region and the federal government will be supportive of accelerated development across all regions of the country,” he said.

Last week, Sheikh Mohammed announced that the UAE had allocated Dhs11bn towards federal roads and infrastructure projects in the Northern Emirates.

On Monday, during his visit to the Higher Colleges of Technology in Fujairah, Sheikh Mohammed also announced the allocation of Dhs1.5bn to build “a new generation” of schools in the country.

The schools will include laboratories for robotics, artificial intelligence, health and the environment, as well as specialised sports facilities, he said.
