Hamad bin Mejren, DTCM Manager, Missions, met with Zakaria Khalaf, CEO and Chairman of the ACT. The two parties discussed different modes of enhancing bilateral cooperation particularly in the field of trade and tourism.

The ACT delegation is currently on a tour of the Middle East countries to promote the cause of US-Arab friendship and invigorate trade and tourism links between the US and the Middle East. "Discussions with the ACT were very fruitful and the DTCM is looking forward to forging important trade and tourism ties with US business groups and tour operators. Dubai already has a significant presence in the US market, and we are looking at further strengthening our position," Hamad bin Mejren said.

In 2005, there was a significant 67 per cent increase in the number of US hotel guests in Dubai when compared to 2004.
