Dubai, May 2, 2013
A delegation of 35 business leaders from Poland recently visited Dubai World Central (DWC) to learn about the state-of-the-art infrastructure and discuss investment opportunities in the aviation, logistics, trade and tourism sectors.
Headed by the Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency – ‘Invest in Poland’ (PAIiIZ), the delegation is in Dubai for the third Annual Investment Meeting (AIM) organised by the UAE Ministry of Economy in cooperation with Strategic Marketing and Exhibitions.
There are more than 120 aviation-related companies in Poland with annual revenues of 800 million euros ($1.05 billion), the majority of which are small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
BoZena Czaja, member of the Management Board for Regional Development, PAIiIZ and member of the delegation said: “We are impressed with the development and sophistication of Dubai World Central as it offers a huge opportunity for Polish investors. We have therefore invited DWC officials to visit Poland and present the wide-ranging business and investment opportunities that the project offers.”
Rashed Bu Qara’a, chief operating officer, Dubai Aviation City Corporation, said: “The aviation industry in Poland dates back more than 80 years, and we are keen to cooperate with them to build on this long tradition of aviation excellence.
“Dubai World Central is ideally located to serve European companies, helping them expand their business and reach their target markets worldwide. Moreover, the wide selection of services and state-of-the-art facilities available at DWC create new growth opportunities for aviation companies and enable them to enter new markets.”
Recognised as the Middle East's first aerotropolis, Dubai World Central is one of the most ambitious projects of its kind in the world comprising the new Al Maktoum International Airport, set to be the world's largest in volume and size upon completion, and the adjacent specialized free zones focused on logistics sectors and aviation industries. – TradeArabia News Service
