    The China-UAE Industrial Capacity Cooperation Demonstration Zone is a major cooperation project to implement the important consensus reached by the two countries and serve the Belt and Road Initiative. As the two nation's industrial capacity cooperation continues to advance, and with the zone located in the port-vicinity industrial park of Khalifa Industrial Zone having made good progress, the high-quality construction of the Belt and Road initiative will be further accelerated, and the bilateral development strategies will be strengthened, facilitating the completion of the projects of Khalifa Port Container Terminal 2 and the China-UAE Industrial Capacity Cooperation Demonstration Zone.

In 2020, the China National Nuclear Corporation confirmed that its subsidiary, the China Zhongyuan Engineering Corporation, would invest in JOCIC as the second largest shareholder. The registered capital of JOCIC now exceeds 700 million yuan (about $96.8 million).
