In line with Dubai's vision to be a regional and global trade and economic hub and a preferred host of prestigious international events, Dubai Municipality has announced its full support to the first-ever Dubai Maritime Week 2012 to be held in November.
Eng. Rashad Bukhash, Director of Architectural Heritage Department, Dubai Municipality, said: "We appreciate the efforts of Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) to organize this important event. Our support to Dubai Maritime Week 2012 is in line with our goal to stimulate government participation in key industry initiatives, which help validate the UAE's position as a leading destination for high-profile international events. As part of our commitment to maintain and protect historical sites in the emirate in general, and in line with our efforts at the Architectural Heritage Department to enlist Dubai Creek as a World Heritage Site in particular, we are glad to organize a dedicated workshop during Dubai Maritime Week to discuss various aspects about Dubai Creek, in the presence of international experts and professionals from different industries. This move is an opportunity to shed light on this important water passage and its role in boosting trade and economic growth, as well as its contribution towards the general development of the emirate over the past decades."
Organized in collaboration with several strategic partners from Dubai Government, Dubai Maritime Week 2012 will host a range of maritime industry-related activities and events, including conferences, panel discussions and forums, as well as public-oriented activities to celebrate Dubai's maritime heritage.
Amer Ali, CEO, Dubai Maritime City Authority, added: "The support of Dubai Municipality and many other government entities reflects their commitment to promote the UAE as an international destination and a hub for major international events, thus creating more opportunities for economic growth and investments. Bounded together by our shared objectives, we aim to contribute to the success of Dubai Maritime Week 2012, which has emerged as one of the most important global events being held in Dubai."
The inaugural Dubai Maritime Week 2012 is being organized through the close cooperation between DMCA and Seatrade, one of the leading publishing houses and maritime-related event organizers in the world. The event will feature the 'Seatrade Middle East & Indian Subcontinent Awards', 'Seatrade Middle East Maritime Exhibition & Conference' and 'Seatrade Middle East Money & Ships Conference'. Collectively, these events are poised to provide an ideal platform for local and international maritime professionals, experts, suppliers, economists, analysts and industry financiers to discuss the challenges and urgent issues across the maritime industry.
