Dubai Chamber, DMCA to promote UAE maritime sector at SMM 2016
Dubai Chamber and Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) are looking to promote the local maritime sector’s competitiveness by participating in SMM Hamburg 2016, taking place from 6-9 September.

Dubai Chamber and DMCA will also dispatch a trade mission to Germany from 4-10 September to meet with local and international business communities, with an aim to highlight the features of Dubai’s maritime cluster, strengthen channels for direct communications, explore new investment prospects, and gain access to innovations and emerging trends in the global maritime industry.

H.E. Hisham Abdullah Al Shirawi, the Dubai Chamber’s second vice chairman, said: “We organize the UAE’s trade mission on the sidelines of the prestigious SMM Hamburg 2016 following our success during the 2014 edition, with UAE delegates meeting with their German and other foreign counterparts.

During their interactions, they exchanged experiences, transferred knowledge, and discussed effective strategies to boost the capacities of the maritime and shipbuilding sector. We are confident that our efforts, in cooperation with DMCA, will deliver tangible and positive results in terms of supporting the growth of maritime activity and consolidating Dubai’s reputation as a major global headquarters for operators of ports and a key global destination for ship owners.”

Amer Ali, executive director of DMCA, said that participating in SMM Hamburg 2016 will bolster national efforts aimed at promoting the competitive advantages of the UAE’s maritime sector through Dubai which moves towards becoming one of the world’s best maritime capitals.

“We look forward to the upcoming event, which will undoubtedly help us attract new investments necessary to boost the maritime sector’s contributions to the UAE’s economic diversification agenda and comprehensive development,” he said.

DMCA and the Dubai Chamber will occupy the UAE pavilion (B3.OG.120) during SMM Hamburg 2016.
