Amer Ali, Executive Director of DMCA, said: “The adoption of the ‘Dubai Maritime Innovation Quattro Helix Partnerships’ model is intended to strengthen our collaboration with Government, Academicians, private sectors and research and development (R&D) institutions. This is a significant move meant to promote R&D and innovation in building integrated logistics programs, preparing suitable infrastructure, and developing an advanced maritime regulations and legislations that will ensure efficient management of maritime operations according to the highest standards of occupational safety, best practices, and local and international conventions. All these efforts will enhance Dubai’s position as a world-class maritime center.”
