Maritime opportunities in Dubai

22-09-2016 08:00:00


The fall in oil prices has reduced activity in the offshore and maritime industry. In Dubai there is still an ambitious growth strategy for the maritime area, which offers opportunities for Danish companies. The Danish General Consulate in Dubai will set focus on this on October 3 in Frederikshavn.

"In addition to ship activity in the region there are a number of projects related to the industry, for example, expansion of ports, freight terminals, etc. With a total value of more than $ 100 billion. This contributes to the establishment of several shipyards and other facilities related to the maritime sector. In addition, the region has a central location as a hub between Europe, Asia and Africa, which has led to a number of industries setting up to use both local potential and the strategic location ", says Axel Christian Klafstad who's the commercial advisor in oil and gas and maritime area at the consulate General in Dubai.

Recently, the government in Dubai launched a maritime strategy, which aims to become global hub for the maritime industry. With more than 170,000 port arrivals, an annual container traffic of 50 million TEUs and a growing offshore industry where approximately 2,500 special vessels operate, the Middle East is undoubtedly becoming one of the most important regions for the maritime industry. It provides opportunities for Danish maritime companies.

On Monday, October 3 you can listen to Axel Christian Klafstad telling about the industry and the opportunities for Danish companies. You enter the event via Erhvervshus Nords website.
