Sheikh Hamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chief of the Abu Dhabi Crown Prince's Court, Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Higher Education '&' Scientific Research, Sheikhs and senior officials.

Sheikh Mohammed toured the exhibition held on the event's sidelines which showcased the projects financed by the Fund. He was briefed on the products and services and the support given by the Fund.

Sheikh Mohammed said he was pleased with the diverse projects implemented under the Fund. He urged the aspiring young entrepreneurs to harness technology to grow their businesses and to target regional and international markets.

The Fund's Chairman Hussain Jassem Al Nowais announced the launch of Industrial Finance Programme which can provide project finance facilities of up to Dh10 million to industrial projects that are aligned with the Abu Dhabi Plan 2030.

He revealed that the Fund had, since its inception in 2007, administered project finance facilities to 219 projects at a total value of Dh391 million. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
