Chairman Message

“Construction of the UAE’s cutting-edge national rail network exemplifies this nation’s determination in developing a fully diversified economy.”

It also reflects the wise vision of its leadership in having a varied, sustainable economy that maintains and honours the comprehensive development process initiated by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the Founding Father of the UAE, reinforced by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and implemented under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.

Transportation and logistics are two of the strategic economic sectors which make up the UAE Vision 2021 and Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030. Etihad Rail, as a major constituent part of the sector, has the responsibility of providing safe, reliable and sustainable transportation for freight and passengers within the UAE by building a nationwide integrated railway network that connects the country’s main commercial, industrial, and residential hubs.
