Dubai launches ‘virtual maritime cluster’

Dubai has launched a new online portal to provide integrated digital access to a range of maritime services, with the Dubai Maritime Virtual Cluster (DMVC) aiming to provide an interactive platform for knowledge-sharing and research to further promote local growth within the sector.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}DMVC forms part of Dubai’s ongoing effort to modernise into a competitive, inclusive, and attractive area for maritime investments, to support the UAE’s post-oil strategies to become a diversified and sustainable economy based on knowledge and innovation.

“The launch of the Dubai Maritime Virtual Cluster comes in a very important stage, particularly as Dubai takes its first steps towards international leadership after being ranked as fifth among the world’s most competitive and attractive maritime centres,” said H.E. Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, chairman of the Ports, Customs & Free Zone Corporation in Dubai and chairman of Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA).

“The new initiative stems from its much anticipated role in enhancing the capability of the maritime sector for attracting foreign investments by providing a smart and integrated platform for the world’s maritime best practices, as well as facilitating the accessibility of maritime leaders to the best services available in Dubai.”

“This will ultimately serve the goals of the emirate’s ‘Dubai Plan 2021’, positioning it as one of the most important global hubs for business and investments.”{/mprestriction}
