Mr Al Tamimi said: “We were delighted with the clear messages coming from the Marfa fishing delegation. We were pleased to listen to their suggestions, and that is our job – to work with the local community and bring improvements for them as well as the other ports we manage in the Western Region.”
Jumaa Bin Hathboor saw the meeting as highly successful: “We’d like to thank ADPC for listening to our suggestions. It’s clear that quite a lot of work needs to be done to improve fishing facilities and with their help, we will see changes coming in the near future.
