His Excellency Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman of Drydocks World and Maritime World and chairperson of the DNV GL Offshore Technical Committee outlined the key focus areas for the Regional Committee meeting that will be held in Dubai on October 23, 2014. This was discussed at a meeting with DNV representatives Mr. Bijali M.P., Regional Manager – Offshore Class, Middle East & India and Mr. Ralph Becker, Regional Manager – Business Development, Middle East & India. 

H.E. Buamim discussed the importance of constructive cooperation to push the maritime industry and allied operations in developing economic relations and investment activities in targeted areas and emerging markets. He indicated that the agenda for the meeting should focus on multi-functional vessels, existing regulations, sharing of knowledge and encouraging innovation within the industry including the use of innovative technologies. He suggested that high-level speakers including shipyard manager, oil rig owners and companies be invited and encouraged to present papers at the meeting and to provide practical insights on the business prospects in the Middle East, North Africa and the Indian subcontinent. 
 
The Offshore Technical Committee is established as the definitive forum for exchange of knowledge, experience and views on aspects related to services and business in the region. This committee is charged with updating and sharing current and future challenges, market developments, new technologies and future rules and regulations within the industry.
 
The members of the Technical Committee represent owners and senior executives of companies providing offshore services such as drilling rigs, floating production units, shipyards, consultants and designers, etc. The Committee encourages industry debate on pressing issues and provides an active platform for discussion on developments in technology and support initiatives. 
 
The Regional Offshore Committee is a common platform for all offshore oil rig owners, yards, oil majors, designers and service providers to discuss common technical issues and reach agreeable solutions. His Excellency Buamim said, “Our vision is to unite all stakeholders in the region into the committee and discuss region specific matters. We will encourage and support innovative ideas. After each committee meeting we aim that all the participants gain sate of the art knowledge relevant to their business.”
