    Abu Dhabi Global Market (“ADGM”), the international financial centre in Abu Dhabi, and the Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority (“ADFCA”) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) that enables both institutions to cooperate and share information on a range of matters relating to food safety. The MOU was signed between Dhaher Bin Dhaher Almheiri, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the ADGM Registration Authority, and Mouza Suhail Mohammed Al Muhairi, Control Sector Executive Director of ADFCA.

    Dhaher Bin Dhaher Almheiri, CEO of the ADGM Registration Authority, said, “This collaboration serves to enhance the infrastructure under ADGM jurisdiction and enables companies and professionals to enjoy greater ease of doing business on Al Maryah Island. Partnerships with like-minded and onshore authorities, such as ADFCA, are part of our ongoing commitment to create a one-stop-shop platform on the financial free zone for companies and professionals to efficiently establish, operate and grow their businesses. As an international financial centre, ADGM will play its part to support local and international businesses and together, contribute towards the success and growth of the Abu Dhabi economy.”
