Speaking on the occasion, Shaikh Saud said: "The GGS facility is a timely investment initiative that will complement the growing number of development projects being constructed all over the UAE and the GCC.

"Ras Al Khaimah is prepared to provide all the necessary support to help GGS capitalise on the excellent growth potential of the glass industry in the region."
