The counter, which is located at the Membership Registration Department of the ADCCI, was inaugurated by the Director General of the ADCCI Mohammed Omar Abdullah and Saif Al Mansouri, Director of the Municipalities and Agriculture Department of the Abu Dhabi Municipality.

The inauguration was attended by the Deputy Director General of ADCCI Ahmed Hassan Al Mansouri, and Khaled Omar Balsuwaidi, Director of the Municipality IT Department.

Abdullah said after the inauguration that locating the municipality counter at the ADCCI was another step forward in the services of the economic activity of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and also part of the cooperation between the ADCCI and various government departments and ministries to serve the activities of the business community.

Abdullah expressed confidence that the step will give a big boost to economic development and investment promotion in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

He said that it was also part of the ADCCI's efforts to strengthen the areas of cooperation with the government departments, establishments and corporations which provide complementary services to the businessmen and investors.

As part of this effort, the ADCCI recently opened a counter by Etisalat to provide all the services provided by the corporation, including payment of bills, availing of new telephone, fax and internet connections and disconnection of services.

Abdullah also stressed the importance of regular meetings between the Abu Dhabi Municipality and the ADCCI to strengthen the areas of cooperation and discuss ways to offer more services and facilities to ADCCI members and clients. This step, he said, would also save a lot of time and hassles for the ADCCI clients, who could transact business with various departments and establishments by visiting only one place.

The ADCCI chief also said that this was also part of the effort to realise its vision of becoming a leading institution in supporting and enhancing the global status of Abu Dhabi and being a true representative of the private sector.
