Dubai South has signed a statement of intent with the ‘Trade and Investment Queensland’ to help Dubai build the world’s largest urban renewal development. The deal was signed by Dubai Aviation City Corporation and Dubai South Executive Chairman His Excellency Khalifa Al Zaffin and Jackie Trad, Deputy Premier and Minister for Trade and Investment.
“This will open new opportunities for Queensland businesses to commercialise, collaborate and develop their products and services in the UAE and the wider Middle East,” says Ms Trad.
Two Queensland companies travelled with Ms Trad on the trade mission have memorandums of understanding (MOU) with Dubai-based firm, ‘Duserve,’ to deliver software and grey water technology for the development.
Dubai South, adjacent to the 2020 World Expo site, will house one million residents and is being built around the new Al Maktoum International Airport, which is set to be the world’s largest passenger and freight airport.
Duserve is a wholly owned company of Dubai World Central and the Dubai Aviation City Corporation, offering building facilities management services throughout the GCC.
This deal is part of Dubai government’s goal to formulate Dubai for Expo 2020 and transform the site into an ecosystem that connects businesses in the transport and logistics, travel and tourism, real estate, and education sectors.
