A delegation of five senior officials from the Abu Dhabi Department of Community Development (ADDCD), United Arab Emirates (UAE) visited the Singapore National Co-operative Federation Ltd. (SNCF) on August 17 2018 as part of their study visit to Singapore. The delegation was led by ADDCD Chairman Dr Mugheer Al Khaili. Established in February 2018, ADDCD is responsible for the development of social, cultural and religious cohesion among all segments of the Abu Dhabi society, including both Emiratis as well as the more than 200 other nationalities living in Abu Dhabi. Hence, ADDCD was keen to learn from Singapore’s experience in community-building and social cohesion and in particular the role played by the co-operative movement.
