DUBAI, 3rd October, 2015 (WAM) -- The UAE has been ranked first globally in the Quality of Roads Indicator, according to the Global Competitiveness Report issued by the World Economic Forum, for the year 2015-2016.

Dr. Abdullah bin Mohammed Belhaif Al Nuaimi, Minister of Public Works, hailed the UAE leadership's unlimited support, that makes it possible to achieve the best for the UAE citizens and expatriate residents. He also stressed that the trophy was a result of the efforts exerted by the UAE under the wise leadership of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

He also noted that the Quality of Roads Indicator in the Global Competitiveness Report 2015-2016, not only tackles standards of technical aspects in terms of implementing roads and engineering mechanisms, but also includes supporting standards for the economic development movement in terms of providing a supportive roads network for the international trade network in the country.
