The summit will be held with a great interest and involvement from the international and regional maritime shipping sectors, during which speakers will provide valuable information on the various factors affecting the clusters, the conclusions of intellectual ideas and will explore the prospects of future developments.
H.E Dr. Al Nuaimi explained that “the Abu Dhabi Summit of Global Marine and Maritime Leaders” is of strategic significance as it underpins efforts to improve the maritime sector in the UAE, which in turn, has high level competitive potentials. He added
“We are confident in our ability to achieve qualitative development and make the radical shift to promote the local maritime sector to a new level of growth and sustainability in collaboration with our strategic partners in the public and private sectors. We look forward for the Mare Forum to significantly tackle the application of maritime strategic axes which will have a central role in activating the contribution of the maritime sector in driving the growth of vital economic sectors and turn Abu Dhabi into a major center of entrepreneurship and investment,” he added.
Eng. Rashed AlHebsi, CEO of Tasneef said: “We recognize the importance of the Mare Forum in promoting interactive discussions among international leaders within the global maritime industry that could direct the future of international maritime and shipping industry and a number of allied sectors. Mare Forum in Abu Dhabi will help global leaders connect with the strong and emerging maritime sector in the UAE and introduce key decision-makers in the region to international players. This will assist in building bridges, structuring new partnerships and expanding meaningful networks.”
AlHebsi added “We are privileged to enter into this international partnership to bring such an event to business leaders in the region and to the industry as a whole. An event of this stature will also give a major impetus to Abu Dhabi to create a safe, secure, and sustainable maritime sector.”
The 2016 Mare Forum also aims to recognize the global role played by the UAE in general and Abu Dhabi in particular in leading ground breaking initiatives in the Maritime, offshore, oil, gas & energy sectors. Moreover, it holds a distinguished position within industry circles and maritime transport, and can make a major impact on international business.
“If we look at the world we find the UAE as one of the most important points for global and regional growth, where Abu Dhabi is a focal point for business, marine and maritime industrial affairs due to its interactive commercial and economic policies. We trust that our partnership with Tasneef will bring a great added value to the Mare Forum this year,” Mr. Jannis Kostoulas, President of Mare Forum said.
