Over the years we have done excellent business with the Greek shipping community with the business interactions increasing over time. Our participation in this event will cement this already solid relationship & will assist in growing this further. As the Greek shipping sector continues to grow rapidly, we also wish to showcase the excellent infrastructure and service opportunities that we offer at Dubai Maritime City, a world-class maritime cluster, to Greek investors who want to take advantage of the stellar location, connectivity and networking opportunities at this facility.”

The plots in the Business District are for mixed use and allows for residential, commercial or hospitality related developments and are under various stages of implementation. Additionally there are innumerable advantages of being situated on the Jumeirah coastline, close to the heart of the trading hub of Dubai& in close proximity to the international airport and cruise line hub at Port Rashid.
