the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing, or DTCM, will discuss the achievements made in the last year based on the collective commitment from industry stakeholders to sector growth and development.

Helal Saeed Almarri, director-general of the DTCM, said: "Since His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, announced the Tourism Vision for 2020 at last year"s ATM, the UAE has won the right to host Expo 2020 in Dubai."

Almarri added: "The first phase of our second international airport has opened at Dubai World Central and a substantial number of new hotels, attractions and events have opened, taken place or been announced. Further, in addition to UAE federal pre-entry visa regulations on European Union member states being lifted, major legislative changes have been made which will directly and positively impact the tourism sector and enable us to attract more business and leisure travellers."
