In addition, the strategic location at the gateway to Middle East, North Africa and Asia helps in establishing business ties with companies within and outside the region. We are delighted that a well-known company such as Mubarak Marine has chosen decided to further their operations from the city, this will definitely fuel the growth of the repair and maintenance sector and also direct attention to the important role played by the City in facilitating maritime activity both regionally & globally.”  



Mr. Juma Mubarak, CEO of Mubarak Marine Group said, “Dubai Maritime City encourages the growth of the ship repair and maintenance sector by providing excellent infrastructure, logistical support, ready hassle-free set up all of which are pre-requisites for achieving faster Return-on-Investment. The opportunities within the City for networking, building, growing and sustaining a business are immense and we hope to capitalize on this.”
