Dubai, October 15, 2012
A senior delegation of investors from Japan recently visited Emirates NBD Pearl Musuem, where they were given a guided tour of one of the most important heritages of the Gulf, pearling.
The delegation was headed by Shinji Kawasaka, chairman of the Asia-Pacific Economic and Environmental Research Society; and Yasu Nakashima, CEO, Japan and international director at LaSalle Investment Management.
They were received by Ali Al Kaitoob, the general manager of Emirates NBD Properties; and Ibrahim Sowaidan, head of group corporate communications at Emirates NBD.
The Museum plays an important role in educating visitors about the culture and heritage of the UAE and what life was like before the discovery of oil, a statement from Emirates NBD said. The unique collection of natural pearls is preserved in an elegantly designed museum under the custody of Emirates NBD and located at its headquarters building in Dubai.
