Dubai: The UAE Maritime Week, which is patronaged by the UAE Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure, has unveiled its steering committee for 2023. The Week, which is slated for 15th to 19th May 2023, will bring together the region’s marine industry through a number of events for beneficial business prospects and lead ground-breaking initiatives to guarantee the industry’s future.
The steering committee, led by some of the most renowned individuals in the regional maritime sector, will provide guidance on the overall theme of the UAE Maritime Week, and suggest important initiatives that could support the growth of the industry. Committee members will also act as ambassadors for the Week, promoting its benefits to the wider community, encouraging local and regional leaders to support its initiatives, and positioning the Week as the knowledge hub for the sector.
Eng. Hessa Al Malek, Advisor to the Minister for Maritime Transport Affairs, UAE Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure remarked that, “Over the years of our existence, we have grown significantly to be placed as one of the leading maritime hubs around the world. Our state-of-the-art infrastructure, quick adoption of advanced digital solutions, and strategic location at the crossroads of international trade routes, have played a vital role in the recognition we have today. However, what has truly enabled us to continue our progress despite the several challenges we faced in the past couple of years, are the unique strengths of the 27,000+ maritime companies that operate in the UAE.”
“The UAE Maritime Week has played a vital role in connecting these organisations through an unparalleled networking platform. The Week identifies and tackles the biggest issues facing the sector. It is necessary that the Week’s approach towards solving these pressing concerns is supported through the expertise and insights of regional industry experts such as this committee. By setting up a steering committee for the Week, we will be able to successfully meet the objectives of the events taking place during the Week, and oversee strategic decisions leading to the growth of the sector in the region,” Eng. Al Malek further added.
