DMCA backs Dubai boat show
Dubai, January 28, 2012
Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA), the government entity in-charge of regulating and supervising all aspects of the maritime sector in Dubai, has announced its support to this year's Dubai International Boat Show in March.
As a specialized pavilion exhibitor, DMCA said it aims to raise awareness on the role of the maritime authority in supporting the development of a safe and highly developed maritime sector in Dubai.
DMCA’s pavilion will provide a presentation of Dubai’s best practices in boating, and introduce various safety procedures for marine applications that are being enforced by the maritime authority.
Provisions concerning the boating community in the newly unveiled Strategic Plan for developing Dubai’s maritime sector will also be presented by DMCA, as well as those that focus on the development and regulation of the maritime sector.
DMCA will also conduct presentations about the regulations that have been introduced to maintain the high levels of safety and ensure environmental protection in Dubai’s waters, along with best international practices adopted by the emirate in line with Dubai’s Maritime Strategic Plan.
The authority will also unveil new awareness campaigns targeting recreational boating enthusiasts in Dubai during the Boat Show which will take place from March 13 to 17 at the Dubai International Marine Club, Mina Seyahi.
These initiatives are being developed by the maritime authority in collaboration with various industry-related organisations as well as the Dubai Port Police.
Amer Ali, executive director of DMCA, said: 'The Dubai boat show is one of the most prestigious and largest networking events for stakeholders in the regional recreational boating and yachting industry.'
'It also presents an excellent platform to discuss and create greater awareness about DMCA’s ongoing initiatives and long-term strategic plans.'
'Moreover, Dubai is increasingly becoming the region’s leading maritime hub and there is certainly a growing interest in DMCA’s role as the regulating and supervising entity in the emirate’s boating sector,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
