Dubai, November 4, 2013
Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) will showcase Dubai’s experience as a world-class international maritime hub at the 2014 Posidonia Exhibition in Athens, Greece.
The event will be held from June 2 to 6.
Sultan Bin Sulayem, chairman of Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation and president of DMCA, emphasised the importance of participating in the exhibition.
“DMCA will shed light on the strategically important Dubai Maritime Sector Strategy (DMSS), the first plan of its kind in Dubai aimed at regulating, developing and promoting the maritime industry under the highest standards of excellence, creativity, innovation, human investment and environmental protection. It will be vital to creating a secure and vibrant maritime industry that can drive sustainable economic development,” he said.
“We look forward to discussing the key pillars of DMSS which will take advantage of the emirate’s various strengths such as its strategic location, prosperous economy, healthy investment environment, and integrated maritime legislations. We will also underscore other factors such as growing imports and exports and financing and brokerage, all of which are poised to add more value and comprehensiveness to Dubai’s maritime community,” he added.
Ahmed Butti Ahmed, executive chairman of DMCA, said: “Posidonia Exhibition 2014 is of particular importance as a leading interactive platform aimed at encouraging communication among decision makers from across the world's maritime industries. It will discuss the latest developments and best practices to overcome emerging challenges and create a bright outlook for the future. DMCA’s participation will focus on Dubai’s experience as one of the world’s major hubs for maritime trade in view of its strategic location as a gateway between East and West, in addition to its highly competitive logistics services, investment environment, advanced infrastructure, and tax exemption.” – TradeArabia News Service
