Dear Business Partners and Colleagues,

Let me start by wishing you a prosperous 2014!

Going by the last quarter of 2013, the year ahead is promising for the healthcare sector.

Q4 witnessed the most significant announcement – Dubai wins the bid to host World Expo 2020.

The successful bid secures Dubai’s position on a global scale, showcasing its excellence in all its sectors from healthcare to business and customer service. The bid will continue to promote Dubai as one of the world’s leading economies.

For us at DHCC, the World Expo 2020 theme of Connecting Minds, Creating the Future underscores our own ethos. As facilitators of education, research and investment in the medical field, we bring together the world’s top medical minds and acclaimed healthcare providers under one roof.

Together with our business partners, we aim to meet the healthcare needs of residents and medical tourists.
The quarter also witnessed a national brainstorming invite by His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, our founder, to share ideas on healthcare and education. On our part, we contributed with suggestions on medical education, medical training and preventive care.

With this level of support, the healthcare industry can certainly look forward to new opportunities and continued growth.

Again, I wish you success for the year ahead.

Best regards,

Marwan Abedin
CEO of Dubai Healthcare City
