WAM Abu Dhabi, 12th June, 2012 (WAM) -- The Committee tasked with Implementing the Initiatives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, has examined the preliminary list of 250 Emirati applicants for housing during its meeting here in Abu Dhabi.
The list was compiled by technical teams tasked with studying these cases to determine their eligibility for these facilities.
The Committee is working diligently to deliver the vision of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan for securing adequate houses and decent living for every citizen and in implementation of directives of His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, for swift processing of citizens' applications.

The technical teams are accelerating their work of studying files of those citizens so as to present them to the Committee for final approval.
Ahmed Juma Al Za'abi, Deputy Minister for Presidential Affairs and Chairman of the Committee, said the Committee is determined to implement the President's vision for building world-class, fully serviced residential complexes in consistence with the latest international architectural designs and specifications.
He affirmed the Committee is also keen to provide these integrated residential communities with all essential services and vital utilities so as to preserve the special character and identity of the Emirati families and strengthen social cohesion in a way that secures decent living to UAE citizens.
