With its free zone, the port sits at the crossroads of world trade, offering business-friendly processes to attract customers and together they contribute to over 20% of Dubai’s GDP.
Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and CEO, DP World, said: “Dubai dared to dream and its vision became reality resulting in its transformation into a leader in everything it does. Anticipating change, thinking smart and planning for the future provided the foundations on which we build today and tomorrow and now we are in the Digital Age where the pace of change and new technologies happens faster than ever before we need to keep learning to survive and flourish.
