Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA), the government authority charged with regulating, coordinating and supervising all aspects of the maritime sector in Dubai, has announced its firm commitment to supporting the Dubai Maritime Vision 2030 plan. The aim is to create a vibrant and safe maritime environment in the next two decades and establish Dubai as a leading global maritime hub.

“Dubai Maritime Vision 2030 is of strategic significance as it underpins efforts to improve the local maritime sector. It also emphasizes how the competitive potentials of Dubai place it among the leading logistics and maritime centres in the Middle East and North Africa region and in the whole world,” says H.E Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, Chairman of Dubai Ports, Customs, and Free Zones Corporation, Chairman of DMCA.

The Dubai Maritime Vision 2030 is a six-goal plan, including efforts to consolidate Dubai’s position as the foremost International Maritime Centre based on its competitive potentials, especially in terms of modern infrastructures, strategic location, customs facilities, and high-level services, as well as positioning Dubai as an international ‘Green Maritime’ body that minimally impacts the environment with its shipping and maritime- related activities through adherence to the highest standards of sustainability.

“Dubai’s huge growth opportunities provide a positive outlook for Dubai’s Maritime sector in the next few years,” comments Bin Sulayem.

“Dubai is all set to create an integrated and vibrant maritime sector after its historic win as Expo 2020 host. This welcome development will add impetus to support for the ambitious vision of the UAE’s leadership to nurture one of the world’s best countries. We look forward to realizing the Dubai Maritime Vision 2030, which will open up new opportunities for further developing infrastructures according to the highest quality and excellence standards. This will pave the way for more achievements that will further reinforce the UAE’s leadership in the regional and international arena.”

Dubai Maritime Vision 2030 is the result of a meticulous study conducted on behalf of DMCA on global maritime trends and possible scenarios. It provides a framework for anticipating future outcomes and their implications on the emirate’s maritime sector.
