Dubai, UAE: The Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry has announced that it will host a high-level international conference on November 14th, 2017, to launch the 10th cycle of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum (MRM) Business Award.

We hope that this conference will provide businesses in the UAE with valuable insights on these changes and inspire them to think more innovatively in their approach to driving organisational growth” H.E. Buamim added.
