The team will provide unified housing services and launch joint projects, as part of the work of the Saudi-Emirati Coordination Council, said a Wam news agency report.

The team is responsible for launching joint housing initiatives, performing studies and presenting proposals to the council’s executive committee, as well as establishing a knowledge platform for unifying standards related to the construction sector and construction materials, it said.

It will also coordinate the implementation of laws that prioritise housing projects and construction materials produced in the two countries, as well as in other GCC member countries.

Dr Abdullah bin Mohammed Belhaif Al Nuaimi, Minister of Infrastructure Development and chairman of the Sheikh Zayed Housing Programme, said the UAE believes in the importance of strengthening its cooperation with Saudi Arabia in providing joint housing services to achieve housing sustainability.

The council was formed as part of an agreement between the UAE and Saudi Arabia signed in May 2016, as per the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.
