Nov 22 2017

H.H. Sheikh Mansour bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum inaugurated the new "Marinas" at the Mina Rashid Marina, which will harbour 5,000 yachts and boats and will accommodate 20,000 in the next few years. It is expected to be a new world-class touristic maritime and entertainment attraction.

The project, carried out by P&O, part of DP World, stretches over 13 square km and features a number of facilities including an integrated entertainment city, Marina Cube.

Sheikh Mansour bin Mohammed toured the place accompanied by Sultan bin Sulayem, DP World Group Chairman and CEO and Chairman of Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation, PCFC. His Highness listened to a briefing on the project which stands out from other attractions with its world-class infrastructure and advanced facilities.

Mohammed Abdul Aziz Al Mannai, CEO of P&O and Executive Director of Mina Rashid said that the project would attract foreign investment and boost tourism, not only in Dubai but all of the UAE.

Cruise tourism continues to grow in the UAE as the government develops the required infrastructure and promotes the country as a cruise destination. The primary driver of the industry’s growth in the UAE is the government’s effort to develop this lucrative segment, especially regarding infrastructure and continuous promotion of the UAE as a destination on a global level.
