DWC says it will be 'a futuristic city' by 2020
By 2020, Dubai World Central (DWC) will have significantly progressed towards becoming a base for companies' global and regional headquarters, according to Paolo Serra, vice president at DWC’s Business Park.
Serra stated: “DWC is quickly evolving into a self-sustained, futuristic city it is meant to become.
"By 2020, there will be powerful business and industry synergies operational between DWC, the Al Maktoum International Airport – which will become the world’s largest airport when complete – and the Jebel Ali Port.”
Serra was addressing an audience that comprised members of the Middle East Chapter of CoreNet Global, a global association for corporate real estate and workplace professionals, service providers and economic developers, and DWC Business Park tenants.
He also noted that Dubai’s value proposition in terms of political, financial and legal appeal, and high quality of life will grow with upcoming government policies designed to attract more people to invest in the UAE for the long-term.
DWC, built around Al Maktoum International Airport (AMIA), integrates global trade, business, logistics and aviation. It was designed to increase speed and efficiency for sea-to-air and air-to-sea cargo.
