The first session of the Dubai Partnership Agenda (DPA) has been held with a view to promoting the sustainable growth of the emirate's tourism sector.

Held under the patronage of Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the crown prince of Dubai and chairman of the Executive Council, the panel consisted of Dubai's key public and private stakeholders in the tourism industry who discussed the legislative and regulatory environment and the current state of the sector, the DPA said.

Sheikh Hamdan commented that the government of Dubai welcomed consultative policy recommendations that would support the Dubai Strategic Plan 2015 and the UAE Vision 2021.

He stated that open dialogue between public and private sectors was important for supporting sustainable growth and increasing the competitiveness of Dubai.

"We have complete trust in the capability of public and private sectors to have open and constructive dialogue tor the development of different sectors. We are looking forward to the first outcomes of DPA on tourism industry. We will review and initiate action on appropriate recommendations," added Sheikh Hamdan.

The General Secretariat of the Executive Council, which leads and facilitates the DPA, will oversee that the approved recommendations are implemented by concerned government entities.
