DMCA to take part in Dubai boat show
Dubai, March 12, 2012
Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA), which regulates the maritime sector in Dubai, has completed extensive preparations for its participation at the Dubai International Boat Show (DIBS) 2012.
DIBS 2012 will be held at the Dubai International Marine Club, Mina Seyahi, from March 13 to 17.
DMCA will have an exclusive pavilion at DIBS as it aims to create greater awareness about best practices and standards of maritime safety among users and operators of different marine crafts and recreational boats in Dubai.
The maritime authority will also distribute copies of a special booklet titled “Safety and Security Guidelines for Users of Jet Skis”, as part of continuing efforts to develop services, regulations and guidelines that aim to further strengthen the level of safety and help improve the maritime environment in Dubai.
Furthermore, the initiative complements the continuing efforts of DMCA to raise awareness in society about the importance of using safety devices when handling jet skis and other water crafts, emphasizing the need to abide by safety instructions and laws, be familiar with the rules of usage, traffic, slip way places, areas of marine activities, and taking preventive measures to avoid accidents.
Amer Ali, executive director of DMCA, said: “We always focus on raising public awareness for the safety of practitioners of different marine sports by launching awareness campaigns, participating in marine industry events and strengthening cooperation and coordination between various stakeholders in the Emirate. Promoting safety standards is of paramount importance for us.”
“We are delighted to participate in Dubai International Boat Show, which serves as an ideal networking platform with all regional and international stakeholders and decision makers within the leisure boat and yacht sector. It allows us to discuss key maritime issues related to recreational boating.”
“During the event we will also unveil our strategic plans that aim to create a safe and sustainable maritime environment that reinforces Dubai’s position as a leader in maritime excellence and development. We look forward to promoting safety procedures and various ways of avoiding marine accidents by following early warnings and sea guidelines,” Ali concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
