Dubai 2003 organizing committee meets to discuss event progress
The Organising Committee of Dubai 2003 met on November 30 to discuss the progress and latest developments of work being undertaken by the 10 specialist committees created to ensure the success of next year's event.
Committee members were assured that all work is on schedule and Dubai 2003 General Coordinator, Ibrahim Belselah, presented a comprehensive report updating the committee on the current status of the arrangements for the annual meetings.
The committee also assigned representatives of the 10 committees to coordinate with colleagues on the other committees to ensure the most effective cooperation and partnership. It also discussed arrangements for a forthcoming visit to Dubai and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) by representatives of the General Secretariat of the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund.
The Annual Meetings of the Boards of Governors of the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund were first held in Washington DC in 1946. They are hosted by an international city one year in three. Dubai and the UAE were selected because of its highly developed transportation and logistics infrastructure, growing importance as a financial hub and its established position as an oasis of opportunity. — (menareport.com)
