Focus on maritime sector development
Dubai, August 1, 2013
The Maritime Security Executive Committee discussed ways to strengthen joint cooperation in the maritime sector development during its visit to the Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA).
The discussions were also aimed at analysing the Dubai Maritime Sector Strategy (MSS) and the marine driving license issuance services.
The joint meeting shed light on the developments in the implementation of Dubai’s MSS, especially in terms of ensuring compliance with the highest standards of maritime safety, the best environmental practices and the local and international resolutions related to maritime operations management.
Both sides also discussed the achievements in implementing the regulations and the mechanisms of marine craft licensing.
The meeting highlighted DMCA’s services related to licensing of marine crafts and crew on various types of crafts and reviewed the positive results of implementing the licensing policy, especially in terms of enhancing competitiveness, operational performance, and productivity of the local maritime sector and maintaining secure navigation and the highest levels of maritime safety in Dubai.
Amer Ali, executive director, DMCA, said: “The visit reflects DMCA’s achievements and efforts to establish new maritime regulations to build an attractive investment environment for key industry players from different parts of the world and therefore promote Dubai’s leading position as a first-class international maritime hub.”
“This meeting is of immense importance to establish a strong, strategic partnership between both parties to share insights, expertise and best maritime-related practices that will lead to creating an integrated and sustainable maritime environment that is able to respond to emerging trends and potential market requirements while boosting the industry’s contribution to the overall development plan in the UAE.” - TradeArabia News Service
