The Dubai Logistics Cluster Platform, launched by the Dubai Department of Economic Development (DED) in 2011 to promote stakeholder collaboration for sector development, held its regular session on Wednesday to discuss progress achieved so far and strategies to be adopted for enhancing competitiveness in the sector. Industry players and government representatives attending the cluster platform meeting also stressed the need for a stronger integrated approach to strengthen Dubai’s advantages as a multi-modal and logistics hub. “As a premier hub for regional and global trade and a destination of choice for businesses, Dubai has vast opportunities in today’s fast changing global economic landscape. With its world-class logistics infrastructure and best practices, Dubai is best positioned to quickly adapt to - and benefit from - the changes in global trade and acquire new market shares in emerging economies, especially in the fast-growing Asian and African markets,” said Sami Al Qamzi, Director General of DED. “Public-private collaboration is important to ensure that the logistics sector, which is one of the pillars of Dubai’s economy, can make the best use of this opportunity,” Al Qamzi added.
