The Dubai International Finance Centre (DIFC) has celebrated its fifth anniversary, marking its rapid development and the growth of the emirate as a major financial hub.
DIFC has played a key role in the emergence of Dubai as an economic centre of commerce and has fulfilled the role set out for it following its opening by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice-president and prime minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai.
Chairman of the DIFC Authority David Eldon said: "The vision behind DIFC and its development over the last five years represent Dubai's economic dynamism at its best."
He added that as the world economy undergoes dramatic changes over the years ahead, DIFC is well placed to emerge as "major global player".
Meanwhile, the Middle East ATM 2010 is to make a comeback to the emirate next year.
Scheduled for January 11th and 12th, the event will see 26 keynote speakers present on a range of topics that will affect the ATM market in Dubai in the years ahead.
