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, is geared up to participate at the Dubai International Boat Show (DIBS) 2014 which will run from March 4 to 8, 2014 at the Dubai International Marine Club, Mina Seyahi.
DMCA’s participation follows the remarkable success it achieved in the previous editions of the show, which is recognized as one of the world’s leading, largest and most established prestigious marine & leisure event. This year, DMCA is looking forward to increasing more awareness on Dubai’s maritime licensing services at its pavilion. The licensing service is an integrated framework to maintain compliance with the highest standards of maritime safety and the best international practices to promote the industry’s regional and global competitiveness and thereby position Dubai as a first-class international maritime hub.
Through its presence at DIBS 2014, DMCA aims to keep participants more informed on regulations for secure operations, environmental requirements and standards of maritime safety and security; all of which should be provided by public and private marine clubs and marinas in Dubai. It will also introduce water-sports professionals and enthusiasts to the required procedures to maintain maritime safety when driving any type of marine crafts to create a vibrant and secure maritime industry in Dubai.
Amer Ali, Executive Director, Dubai Maritime City Authority, said: “We are glad to participate once again in the DIBS 2014, which offers a high-level interactive platform to promote various communication channels with industry leaders, decision-makers, businessmen and water-sportsmen. DIBS 2014 also provides us with an opportunity to raise public awareness about various means of maintaining the highest levels of maritime safety to prevent human, physical and environmental risks when driving recreational marine crafts. For our part, we will continue our momentum gained through previous editions, by focusing on vital issues, including maritime safety and environmental security in order to support, develop, regulate and promote Dubai’s maritime industry which is remarkably gaining significance across the international maritime landscape.”
DMCA’s pavilion at last year’s edition of the show saw an overwhelming response from trade visitors and water-sportsmen looking into the latest marine licensing services and maritime safety measures targeting recreational yachts, boats and marine crafts. DMCA is committed to launch a series of initiatives aimed at implementing the highest standards of maritime safety and promoting Dubai’s competitiveness amongst regional and international maritime industries. In addition, it will also offer key infrastructures to raise the bar of the local maritime sector, based on a set of fundamentals and core values of excellence, innovation, cooperation and marine environment conservation.
