The king was briefed by Amer Ali, executive director, DMCA and Rashid Mohammed Al Habsi, CEO, Tasneef on Dubai’s current efforts and initiatives towards reinforcing its position as one of the world’s leading maritime centres.

The Norwegian monarch commended the Authority’s global competitiveness and its move to offer attractive investment opportunities in the maritime segment for both regional and international investors.

During the meeting, Amer Ali expressed the DMCA’s continuing commitment towards establishing strategic and fruitful ties with Norway—pledging continued cooperation between the two countries that are aimed at bolstering more growth and development for the global maritime industry.

Towards the end of the visit, Ali presented King Harald V with an English copy of the book, ‘My Vision,’ which was written by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
