Dubai, United Arab Emirates: The Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA), the government authority charged with regulating, co-ordinating and supervising all aspects of Dubai’s maritime sector, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Lloyd’s Register (LR), the global engineering, technical and business services organisation, to jointly undertake Research & Development and Commercialization activities. Amer Ali, Executive Director of the DMCA, and Tom Boardley, LR’s Executive Vice President and Global Head of Corporate and External Affairs, signed the MoU. 

Amer Ali, Executive Director, Dubai Maritime City Authority, said: “Our MoU with LR falls in line with our total commitment to supporting the Dubai Maritime Sector Strategy and Dubai Industrial Strategy, to plan and establish a dynamic and safe maritime sector over the next decades in step with Dubai’s growth into a leading global maritime gateway.

The passion our organizations share for ensuring that the interests of our clients are safe, sustainable and dependable will enable us to jointly set new benchmarks for maritime excellence particularly in R&D and commercialization locally and across the region.”

Under the terms of the MoU, both parties will set up a joint applied technology cluster to drive research and accelerate the development of mid to high level technology readiness areas that support current and future maritime industry needs.
