On behalf of the UAE maritime industry delegation, I would like to extend my great appreciation to the UAE embassy in Athens and specially to H.E. Sultan Mohammed AL Ali, UAE Ambassador for his support and encouragement to build a stronger and rewarding partnership with the Greeks offshore & maritime industry.

The UAE offshore & maritime industry are growing and expanded its reach, we have seen great potentials and increased interest in what the UAE can offer to the global offshore and maritime industry, we believe this visit will enhance these opportunities for both countries and will create the right partnership that we wish for. We strongly believe in building business relations between nations and we are committed to explore and initiate a platform of opportunity for all stakeholders.

From inception our leaders encouraged us to create value and global interaction to serve all concerned and with this delegation we hope to consolidate our business relationship and explore the added and the extra potential that can be reached.

I once again thank the UAE ambassador H.E. Sultan Mohammed AL Ali for helping us in making this visit possible.

It is always a pleasure to be in the cradle of civilization Athens
