The Dubai 2003 delegation to the Annual Meetings of the Boards of Governors of the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund has started to register delegates to next year's meetings in Dubai and offer them the opportunity to use the new Smart Card technology at Dubai International Airport on arrival next September.
Representatives of the Naturalization and Immigration Department are with the Dubai 2003 delegation in Washington and have taken equipment with them to prepare the cards, register participants at next year's meeting and forward these revolutionary cards to delegates attending from the United States next year.
Dubai 2003 has also commenced an advertising campaign in the US to start the promotional and awareness campaign for the event in Dubai. Advertisements have already appeared in a number of leading US newspapers including the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal.
The Annual Meetings of the Boards of Governors of the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund began in Washington DC in 1946. They are hosted by an international city one year in three. Dubai and the UAE was selected because of its highly developed transportation and logistics infrastructure and growing importance as a financial hub and its established position as the Crossroads for the New Global Economy. — (menareport.com)
