TANGIER: A 700-unit housing project in Asilah City, Morocco, will soon be completed at a total cost of Dhs73 million, Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD) announced on Tuesday.

In a statement, ADFD said that its three-phased community housing project also includes a museum, a school and a bus station and will be handed over to the Moroccan government in the first quarter of 2015.

The ADFD noted that 400 units were built in the first phase, 200 in the second phase and 100 are under construction in the third and last phase of the project which is part of Abu Dhabi’s efforts to support Morocco’s economy and resettle residents of the city’s slums.

ADFD ‘s Director-General, Mohammed Saif Al Suwaidi, said that the fund supports the project as part of the UAE’s keen interest to contribute towards Morocco’s economic development.

He added that sustainable development in Morocco is prioritised by Abu Dhabi’s fund, and that the Fund looks forward to further consolidate its fruitful work and developmental support in order to contribute to efforts to alleviate the suffering of the people.
