Dubai Council for Marine and Maritime Industries, the umbrella industry body representing the marine and relevant industry, had its first introductory member’s meeting. The meeting sought to introduce the members, lay the broad framework for future operations, brainstorming on pressing industry issues and strengthen the foundation for meaningful networking among industry partners.

The meeting was attended by 16 members representing a cross-section of the industry who reasserted their commitment to the Council’s priorities such as promoting overall industry excellence, encourage investment and promote talent.
