Meanwhile, Abdullah Abu Sheikh, co-founder and CEO of the company, said “the UAE, in order to achieve its vision and directives of its wise leadership in preserving the environment and implementing the concepts of sustainable development, supports all global efforts to promote the transformation towards an environmentally friendly mobility system. The UAE continues its efforts to tackle environmental challenges and improve the quality of life of people around the world, which is evident today in its success in significantly reducing emissions related to the transport sector through pioneering plans and initiatives that cover all related areas.”
He continued, “the launch of the company represents an important step for our projects within the field of environmentally friendly electric vehicles. We at Barq are proud to harness our expertise and efforts to contribute to supporting the transformation within the transport sector in the country”, explaining at the same time that diversifying the transportation modes in the country will support its efforts to advance sustainable development as well as limit adverse effects from climate change.
Abu Sheikh added that under the wise leadership and its guidance, Barq looks forward to continuing to work side by side with their partners to make Abu Dhabi the first city in the Middle East and North Africa region that adopts this pioneering system and deploys the most important modern technologies, promoting the sustainable, environmentally friendly transport sector, and positions the Emirate as a world leader in this field.
