Everyone here in Dubai, including us were anxiously waiting for the result and jumped up with joy on receiving the good news.
We would like to congratulate the Royal family of Dubai and especially His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum in succeeding to take the vision of His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan bin Zayed Al Nahyan and His Highness Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum of making U.A.E the central heart of the middle east and a business hub even further.
The Trade Expo 2020 presents many opportunities and allows Dubai to showcase itself to the rest of the world. We are very eager to perform as well with new goals and bigger visions. Looking forward to the coming years and wishing everyone good luck.
