Dubai, May 17th 2018 - The French Business Council Dubai and Northern Emirates (FBC) has received the Dubai Quality Appreciation Award for Representative Entities, presented by HH Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, and HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation. This award was given during the Business Excellence Awards Ceremony held on Tuesday, 24th April 2018 at Dubai Opera.
The Dubai Quality Award is an initiative created by the Department of Economic Development (DED) to promote quality and excellence. It provides organizations a tool to benchmark performance and document existing gaps, but also give a framework to ensure that all different initiatives are pulling in the desired direction.
The category dedicated to business councils and groups, from which the French Business Council has been awarded, looks at how the organization engages with its members and offers added-value.
“It's a prestigious award and we are honored by this distinction from the DED which is the recognition of years of development and improvement of our internal and external processes.” said Agnes Lopez Cruz, Managing Director of the FBC.
She added that this award is also a responsibility and the French Business Council will become an ambassador for other business groups, councils and associations to support the Dubai Quality Award initiative.
Since 1987, the French Business Council Dubai and Northern Emirates aims to build, develop and sustain prosperous Franco-Emirati relationships.
