Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) has welcomed Clarksons Platou’s initiative in opening its new office at the Gold Tower in Dubai. The inauguration ceremony was attended by a number of government officials, decision makers, and maritime leaders, including Amer Ali, Executive Director of Dubai Maritime City Authority; Nawfal Al Jourani, Chief Officer of Dubai Maritime Cluster Office; and Essam Bella, Managing Director of Clarksons Platou.
The new office in Dubai is Clarksons Platou’s fourth largest office after London, Oslo and Singapore. It is expected to provide a platform from which to expand Clarksons Platou’s operations in the Middle East, India, Egypt and Morocco, particularly in brokerage services in the dry cargo, specialised products and offshore markets.
Essam Bella said: “Given its strategic location as a link between East and West, Dubai provides the ideal gateway for us to serve our extensive customer base in the Middle East. We look forward to our new office providing us with the opportunity to manage our regional operations efficiently from one of the world’s most attractive and competitive maritime centres.”
