The UAE labour ministry will soon use high-resolution satellite imagery to monitor the country’s big construction projects which have been the scene of several riots, newspapers reported Monday.
The ministry signed last week an agreement with leading international mapping and satellite imagery services provider Informap to monitor the sites, according to Emirates Today.
The new programme will help the ministry inspect the sites, it said.
Dubai, the commercial hub of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), is in the midst of a massive infrastructure development and construction drive largely fueled by thousands of Asian labourers mainly from India and Pakistan.
