DMCA  officials reviewed the most competitive advantages of the local maritime sector which have had the greatest impact on Dubai ranking among the world's most  attractive and competitive maritime sectors and the top 10 maritime capitals of 2017. They also focused on Dubai's regional maritime and logistics services and the competitive advantages of Dubai which have gained the confidence of regional and international investors in the emirate as a major contributor in shaping the future of the maritime industry.

He pointed out that this involvement has heightened Dubai's leading experiences in becoming one of the world's most stable, sustainable, competitive, inclusive and attractive maritime investment clusters which has become a model of how the needs of regional and international maritime leaders, particularly owners and operators of giant vessels and ships, can be effectively addressed.

Ali Al Dabbous, Executive Director of Operations for the Dubai Maritime City Authority, said: 'Our participation in the summit concentrated on identifying Dubai's advantages that enhance its excellence and global leadership in terms of competitiveness and attractiveness, maritime services, legal expertise, insurance and maritime finance, especially in light of its exceptional achievement of turning into one of the world's best maritime capitals, on an equal footing with Singapore, Hamburg, Oslo, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Copenhagen, Athens and London. We look forward to advancing international partnerships with ship owners and managers, particularly in using new technologies to reduce costs and ensure compliance with Bitcoin regulations and sustainability, as well as upgrading operational efficiency and the management of autonomous ships. We are committed to continue working with maritime leaders to guide the international maritime sector to higher levels of excellence in the future. '

Al Jourani said: “The 2017 Annual International Shipowning & Shipmanagement Summit provided a global platform to discuss the preparedness of  today's ship management sector in meeting the growing demands of the digital revolution as well as forward-looking ideas for activating its role in shaping and building the future of the global economy. Our participation highlighted Dubai's experiences as a model city in developing one of the world's best maritime clusters in terms of competitiveness and attractiveness, based on the pillars of creativity, innovation and technological progress. We will continue to participate in international forums to bring Dubai's knowledge, expertise and achievements to the world in order to drive the growth of the international maritime industry. '
