DMCA and Stakeholders Review Progress in Dubai Maritime Sector Strategy
 

June 26, 2013, Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA), the government authority charged with regulating, coordinating and supervising all aspects of the maritime sector in Dubai, has recently reviewed the progress in the implementation of the new Dubai Maritime Sector Strategy (MSS) which is poised to develop, regulate and promote the industry that will ultimately position Dubai as a first-class international maritime hub. This follows a special workshop that was held recently at DMCA's headquarters in Dubai and attended by key maritime stakeholders and leading relevant government entities who discussed the latest developments and achievements in creating a regionally and globally competitive maritime industry. The workshop also aimed to lay down the foundations to establish the local maritime industry in accordance with the highest standards and best international practices.

The workshop was attended by Samira Mohammad AlRais, Director of Policy and Strategy, Sustainable Development and representatives from Dubai Ports, Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing, Dubai Customs, RTA, Dubai Police and Dubai Municipality. The event shed light on the key performance indicators of MSS and the implementation process which has thus far resulted in establishing new industry regulations to ensure compliance with the highest maritime standards.

Participants revealed that the progress made is expected to boost industry productivity and competitiveness while creating an integrated and sustainable maritime environment that is able to respond to market changes and emerging trends by attracting regional and international investors to leverage Dubai's rapidly growing footprint as a key player in the global maritime arena. 

Amer Ali, Executive Director, Dubai Maritime City Authority, said: “The local maritime industry remains a key driver of sustainable growth and future comprehensive development and a major factor in boosting Dubai's competitiveness at the regional and international level. MSS is of particular importance as it is the first of its kind plan aimed at achieving a radical change across the maritime sector in Dubai by increasing its contributions to GDP and strengthening its role as one of the major value-added economic sectors, in line with the vision and directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.”

Ali further said: “We are confident in our ability to raise the bar on the local maritime sector and maintain ongoing growth and sustainability in collaboration with our strategic partners from the public and private sectors. We look forward to implementing MSS which will play a pivotal role in boosting the industry's contribution to vital economic sectors and position Dubai as an international marine hub for business and investment.”

The Maritime Sector Strategy is based on a clear vision aimed at promoting Dubai's leading position as a key international hub for maritime navigation and services, revolving around the main fundamentals and values of leadership, customer service, creativity, collaboration and human excellence, while maintaining a safe maritime environment. MSS is an integral part of the Dubai Strategic Plan 2015 that aims to spread the culture of quality and excellence in order to drive the growth of vital economic sectors, especially the maritime sector, thus boosting the real GDP growth rate of Dubai.
