The Tourism and Development Investment Company (TDIC) of Abu Dhabi presented a detailed update of 12 key projects.  The projects include City Center, island retreats, luxury waterfront resorts, and downtown business tourist centers.    The project update comes shortly after TDIC received a AA rating form Standard & Poors, Moody’s and Fitch rating, and demonstrates their commitment to keeping their announced projects on track.

TDIC CEO Lee Tabler said they are developing tourist attractions and facilities consistent with their strategic vision for tourism in the emirate – in a way that is long term and realistic, and will help shape the future tourism industry.   Mr. Tabler said if you quickly look around Abu Dhabi you can see the impact of the projects and how quickly they are being completed. He said the Cityscape project is a platform to show the quantity and quality of TDIC’s projects.
