Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, met Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, the Ruler of Ajman, on Thursday.

The two leaders discussed ways to provide Emiratis with a sustainable and decent life, and to ensure their happiness and social stability in the UAE.

They also talked about continuing development work in the country.

The meeting was also attended by Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Crown Prince of Ajman, Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed, the Ruler's Representative in Al Dhafra Region, and senior government officials.

The UAE regularly carries out work to ensure that citizens are capable of earning a decent livelihood and can enjoy a good quality of life.

Last month, final checks were under way at 323 villas in Sharjah before they were handed over to Emirati families in the emirate.

The villas are part of a Dh400 million ($108m) project to house citizens.

In July, 2020, Abu Dhabi announced that a 3,400-home residential community was to be built for Emiratis in Baniyas North, which is 30 minutes by road from Abu Dhabi city.

The project is scheduled to be completed by September 2023.

In November 2019, Sheikh Humaid ordered the authorities to provide houses to widows and divorced women who earned low incomes and had not benefited from the government's housing grant programme.
