“With 5,700 companies from across 140 countries now operating out of Hamriyah, I believe, the measure of our success lies not in the numbers but in being hands-on with the emerging social concerns and priorities of both our internal and external stakeholders, and making a significant, visible difference to the HFZA community,” Alleem said.
