According to His Excellency Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman of Drydocks World & Maritime World, “We are really pleased to be back once again at Posidonia, an event that takes place every two years in which we participate on a very regular basis. The Greek shipping community has always been adept at managing both the operational and the business sides of shipping making them the owners of the largest independent fleet in the world.Drydocks World & Maritime World has been offering   high quality state-of-the-art services to the international marine & maritime industry ever since its inception. 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.”
 
Dubai Maritime City LLC (DMC) is well on target for completion by Expo 2020.The City with over  2.27 million square metrescomprises of the Marine and Business districts and is designed to encourage a community lifestyle supported by a superlative infrastructure and a conducive environment for modern living that balances working and living conditions as it offers facilities for office, residential, retail and recreational and leisure purposes. 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.
