It will specifically focus on its Maritime Sector Strategy (MSS), the driving force behind Dubai’s strategies to promote, develop, and regulate the maritime sector to make the emirate one of the world’s best maritime capitals by 2020.

Ship owners and pioneers of the maritime sector in Greece and the rest of the world will recognize Dubai’s achievement after its inclusion in the top 10 global ranking in terms of maritime competitiveness and attractiveness released by Menon Business Economics Group in Norway. The participants will also examine Dubai’s world-class maritime clustering. The emirate was ranked fourth out of the five largest port operators in the world by headquarters; sixth in terms of leading centres for port and logistics services as well as site of world-class specialized logistics services; 10th in the world in relation to both the size of ship owners’ fleets and size of fleets managed from the city.

Theodore Vokos, Executive Director, Posidonia Exhibitions S.A., welcomed DMCA’s participation in Posidonia 2016.

“DMCA’s presence in our upcoming event will enable investors, ship owners and stakeholders from Greece and the rest of the world to gain a deeper understanding of Dubai’s strengths, investment opportunities, and promising prospects. Dubai is considered an important gateway to maritime trade among Asian, European and MENA markets”, he said.

DMCA is scheduled to unveil its numerous leading initiatives such as Dubai Maritime Agenda, Maritime Creativity Lab, Maritime Advisory Council, Dubai Maritime Training Center, Smart Marine Services Platform, and Dubai Maritime Intelligence. All these represent a fundamental pillar to strengthen the confidence of regional and international investors in the local maritime environment as well as improve the sector’s performance, safety, efficiency, and competitiveness.

“Posidonia 2016 and other global maritime events serve as ideal platforms to exchange and transfer knowledge, experiences, and best practices with international decision makers and stakeholders”, Amer Ali, Executive Director, DMCA, said.

Posidonia Exhibition, a biennial event, is one of the leading maritime sector events in the world, providing a platform for communication among international decision makers, government officials, experts, ship owners, investors, and representatives of major shipping companies.
