Al Tayer welcomed Chen, and stressed the distinguished relations between the two parties, which have resulted in fruitful cooperation in power and water. Al Tayer presented DEWA’s innovative and pioneering initiatives and projects. These projects aim to achieve the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, which constitutes a roadmap for DEWA’s ambitious initiatives and development projects, to promote sustainability, create a community of happiness, and meet the aspirations of Dubai’s citizens and residents.

It will produce 5,000MW by 2030 at a total investment of AED 50 billion. Al Tayer talked about DEWA’s water projects to increase productivity, improve operational efficiencies, and increase the flow of water.
