Palm Utilities (PU), a Dubai World company, recently entered into an agreement with Dubai Quality Group (DQG), non-profit business organisation, by which PU will be an investor partner of DQG for the first time.
The agreement was signed by Marwan Al Naqi, CEO of Palm Utilities and Dr Yousef Al-Akraf, chairman of DQG, in the presence of Badriya Al Tamimi, managing director of DQG.
Under the partnership, both parties will collaborate on promoting excellence and quality performance in business.
PU will have access to the various workshops, trainings, seminars, conferences and other special events organized by DQG annually to provide networking, information exchange, workplace and professional development opportunities across all types of businesses.
It will also be able to participate in various DQG-initiated benchmarking activities and site visits. DQG, on the other hand, will benefit from PU’s invaluable joint support in organizing quality-focused initiatives and spreading a culture of business excellence in Dubai and across the UAE.

We thank DQG for accepting us into its fold and assure them of a very fruitful collaboration with our organization,” he added.
