DMCA looks forward to Posidonia

01 June 2016

Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) will leverage its participation in the forthcoming shipping exhibition Posidonia to highlight its achievements in smart transformation initiatives and its efforts to increase competitiveness in the emirate’s maritime community. 

DMCA will also underline Dubai’s experience in developing the emirate as a leading global maritime hub and the importance of its Maritime Sector Strategy, it said in a statement. The strategy aims to make Dubai one of the world’s best maritime capitals by 2020.

Posidonia takes place from June 6 to 10 in Athens.

“Ship owners and pioneers of the maritime sector in Greece and the rest of the world will recognise Dubai’s achievement after its inclusion in the top 10 global ranking in terms of maritime competitiveness and attractiveness released by Menon Business Economics Group in Norway. The participants will also examine Dubai’s world-class maritime clustering,” the statement said.

The emirate was ranked fourth out of the five largest port operators in the world by headquarters, sixth in terms of leading centres for port and logistic services and 10th in the world in relation to both the size of ship owners’ fleets and size of fleets managed from the city.

The government’s strategy promoting innovation, creativity and excellence has made Dubai an investment-friendly location with world-class facilities including ports, services and safety systems, it said.

Theodore Vokos, chief executive of Posidonia 2016, commented: “DMCA’s presence in our upcoming event will enable investors, ship owners and stakeholders from Greece and the rest of the world to gain a deeper understanding of Dubai’s strengths, investment opportunities, and promising prospects.” 

Amer Ali, executive director, DMCA, said: “Posidonia 2016 and other global maritime events serve as ideal platforms to exchange and transfer knowledge, experiences, and best practices with international decision-makers and stakeholders.”
