A virtual meeting was organized by Alhosn app’s team yesterday. The meeting was attended by top officials from UAE’s health, economic, real estate, retail, and logistics sectors to elaborate on how these ministries are planning to implement safety as the economy is getting back to reopening.
The meeting was attended by Rashed Abdul Karim Al Balooshi, Undersecretary of the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development, Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, Chief Executive Officer of Abu Dhabi Ports, Talal Al Dhiyebi, Chief Executive Officer of Aldar Properties; and Dr. Farida Al Hosani, official spokesperson for the UAE health sector. Faisal Bin Huraiz moderated the session.
Dr. Al Hosani spoke about the critical role of Alhosn app as businesses resume, restrictions are eased, and more people return to offices. According to her, the app generates confidence among people about safety in public areas and workspaces.
Dr. Al Hosani praised the collaboration of public-private partnerships in the health sector during such a crucial time. It helps instill confidence as the country reopens in the post COVID scenario.
She shared that the government did not impose the use of the app on individuals and institutions. People from different communities and offices are aware of the health concern and act responsibly. The government, according to Dr. Al Hosani thinks downloading Alhosn app is a civil duty of all.
The more people use the app, the app would give much useful real-time data on contact tracing.
Rashed Abdul Karim Al Balooshi, Undersecretary of the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development, said, as more people resume offices after months of COVID closure, they would have to get used to new work culture. Employees should be driven and innovative to meet their target goals in a time-bound manner, with all safety concerns. They have to get used to smart tools to achieve goals for their institution and projects.
Talal Al Dhiyebi, Chief Executive Officer, Aldar Properties, spoke about proactive steps taken by the leadership to restart business and regain confidence. For him, Alhosn app is a crucial enabler to win people’s trust for safety and protecting their families and colleagues.
