A delegation from the government of Fujairah made a two-day visit to BCIL for talks on creating markets for energy-efficient housing and ZED Products and services in the entire UAE region and the GCC countries.
Muhammad Natafji who has served for nearly all his life as a key aide and professional advisor to the Emir of Fujairah, His Highness Sheikh Hamad bin Muhammad Al Sharqi, led the two-member delegation to Bangalore. Mr Manuel Torreiro, who presides over all Health programmes in the Emirate of Fujairah, accompanied Mr Natafji on this business visit.
BCIL signed an MOU with Fujairah National Group which will convert into a joint platform for business after approval from the Board of the two companies, and the personal approval from his highness the Emirate.
A return visit was paid by Dinesh C S, Technlogy Director at BCIL. During his visit he took stock of the state of operations of the different enterprises that operate under the Group. Preliminary studies show there is an excellent fit that BCIL can offer in services and products to enhance cost and quality efficiencies of the FNG’s different building assets.
A ZED Company will be promoted in UAE jointly with the Fujairah National Group. It will promote business interests in areas of Housing, Energy-efficient Products and Home Appliances, ZED Harvest Folio Sprays and other organic enhancers for plants and urban ecology, ZED Solar Solutions, as well as the exclusive designer range of furniture.
BCIL Altech Foundation will stage its presence in UAE with skill sets training and development programmes that Dr Daniel Albuquerque, Director of BCIL Alt Tech Foundation, will soon launch.
After his visit and extensive discussions, Mr Natafji said, “The ZED Villas are world class. I love the finishes, the colours, the designs. The master washroom was a delight with natural sunlight and greenery right inside the toilet!’
When asked about the quality of interaction that he had with the top management at BCIL, he observed, “I came with low expectations and have been bowled over by the rarely seen high-quality knowledge and ability. My decision to create a joint partnership with ZED was made at the very first meeting. I look forward to long years of a sustained business relationship.”
Dr Daniel Albuquerque as Director of BATF has been working on this potential partnership for nearly a year. His persistence and clarity of objectives as played a critical role in shaping this important initiative for BCIL.
