Khalifa Al Zaffin, Executive Chairman of Dubai Aviation City Corporation and Dubai South, said, “Through SITL ME, we will be gaining new insights and opportunities to grow in terms of technology and innovation, which are essential in the drive towards efficiency and sustainability in business operations and management. We are confident the event will bring about these key focus areas which are highly important for both the government and private sectors.”

Dubai has taken a proactive role in planning its development in terms of logistics facilities, zones and investments. We have the best connectivity in the region to reach out to more than three billion people via our air and sea/rail connectivity.”
