With a combined value of AED2.5bn (US$681m), the Dubai Portfolio for Public-Private Partnership (2024-26) includes the Union 71 project that will provide a comprehensive residential and commercial complex adjacent to the Union Station of the Dubai Metro, plus smart streetlighting, an aerial taxi and a sky garden suspended bridge over Dubai Creek.

“Promoting the public-private partnership is crucial to uplifting Dubai's standing and appeal as an investors’ hub,” said His Excellency Mattar Al Tayer, director general and chairman of the board at the RTA.

“It also contributes to improving the quality of public services, and facilitates the transfer of knowledge, expertise, and innovation from the private to the public sector.”
