DMCA plans German maritime majlis
Dubai, September 30, 2013
Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) has announced plans to establish the UAE-German Maritime Majlis in co-operation with the German Emirati Joint Council for Industry & Commerce.
The Majlis will focus on exploring the mutual maritime investment opportunities and creating a collaborative framework to exchange best practices and experiences and discuss the highest standards of maritime safety as well as many other issues related to marine crafts licensing and registration and the global maritime sector.
The announcement came during a special business dinner hosted by DMCA in Dubai in the presence of Dr Abdulla Belhaif Al Nuaimi, Minister of Public Works & chairman of the National Transport Authority.
It was attended by Ahmed Butti Ahmed, the executive chairman of DMCA, Dr Peter Goepfrich, the CEO of German Emirati Joint Council for Industry & Commerce (AHK) and Amer Ali, the DMCA executive director in addition to other senior officials.
Commenting on the move, Ahmed Butti Ahmed said: "The UAE-German Maritime Majlis reflects the importance given by the DMCA in strengthening its international partnerships in order to achieve its strategic objectives aimed at establishing Dubai as a global maritime hub."
The new Majlis is of great strategic importance as it serves as an actionable platform for the UAE and Germany to exchange best practices and experiences and address mutually important maritime-related topics as well as connect business people and decision makers from the maritime sectors of the two countries.
"We thank the AHK for its full support for this undertaking and assure our friends in Germany that Dubai is keen to protect and prosper their maritime interests. We look forward to addressing and resolving our mutual concerns via this Majlis."
Dr. Peter Goepfrich described the new Majlis as a significant initiative that will play a vital role in promoting maritime and economic relations between Germany and the UAE.
"We are very proud of our partnership with DMCA, and we will work hard to strengthen our mutual relation to accomplish major achievements that will have a positive impact on the maritime sector in Germany and the UAE," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
