Dubai Maritime City Authority’s (DMCA) participation was particularly impressive at the international shipping exhibition Posidonia 2016, held in Athens from June 6 to 10, 2016. Greek and international shipowners, decision makers and pioneers of the maritime sector were impressed by the achievements of the government of Dubai to transform the emirate into one of the world’s best maritime capitals. The Maritime Sector Strategy (MSS) was particularly highlighted as the driving force behind Dubai’s inclusion in the top 10 maritime capitals of the world.
More specifically, in Posidonia 2016 the DMCA emphasized on Dubai’s strategic location between East and West, advanced legal and legislative systems and infrastructure, investment-friendly environment, world-class facilities, maritime and logistics services, modern ports, and integrated maritime safety system; components which are supported by the government’s strategy promoting innovation, creativity and excellence.

According to international statistics, the DMCA witnessed remarkable growth in maritime registration and licensing in 2015, with figures doubling over 2014. The official statistics show that 1,623 marine crafts were licensed (compared to 698 in 2014), and 2,396 licenses issued for marine crews (compared to only 945 in 2014), in conjunction with the continued focus on providing new facilities to ensure the highest levels of customer satisfaction and happiness.

Amer Ali, Executive Director, DMCA, said: “We are delighted to participate again in Posidonia and be given an opportunity to present before the international maritime community our remarkable progress in accordance with MSS’ goals. MSS is aligned with the vision of our wise leadership in building a secure, diverse, and comprehensive maritime sector, with solid foundation for innovation, creativity, excellence, human investment, and environmental security. We look forward to discussing optimal ways to maximize Dubai’s competitive advantages, including its strategic location, advanced infrastructure, tax exemptions, modern maritime legislation, and robust import and export sectors.”

While saying goodbye to Greece and Posidonia 2016, we would like to invite the Greek shipping sector and its members in the third consecutive edition of Maritime Week in Dubai. This is one of the leading initiatives attracting participation from senior industry professionals, regional and international experts, decision makers and pioneers of the maritime sector, as a platform for presenting insights on the role of the maritime industry in supporting emerging and developed economies and discussing the present and future of the global maritime sector .

The first-of-its- kind event in the Middle East will be held in Dubai from October 30 to November 3, 2016. Those interested will have the opportunity to see for themselves the impressive achievements in the maritime sector and the changes taking place in the Emirate to support international shipping.
