He said that the integrated approach aligned with our commitment to creating a city that was not only prosperous but also safe for all its residents. Mr. Shah said that the Safe City Project was truly a one-of-a-kind initiative, distinguished not only by its scale but also by the intricate technical complexities it encompasses. “As we stand on the cusp of its launch, we can take pride in our collective efforts to overcome these hurdles and bring this visionary project to fruition.,” he said.
