Dow in the UAE has received the prestigious Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum (MRM) Business Award.
The ceremony for the 9th cycle of the MRM Business Award, held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President of UAE and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, took place last week at Dubai’s Madinat Jumeirah Arena.
During the ceremony, His Highness Sheikh Maktoum Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, presented the award to Dow in the “Business Excellence” category.
The MRM Business Award, which is part of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, was initiated in 2005 by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry to recognise and celebrate the success of organisations that contribute to the sustainable development of economies within the UAE and the wider GCC region, said a statement.
Moosa Al-Moosa, president of Dow in the UAE and finance director for India, Middle East, Africa and Turkey (IMEAT), received the award on behalf of the company and said: “Dow’s relationship with the UAE and the Middle East region is over 35 years old, and our focus has always been to be an active contributor to the long-time growth of the economy and the science and technology sector.”

This is consistent with the UAE’s vision for economic and social development, thus providing a conducive environment for business growth and high performance. We are honoured to become a recipient of the prestigious MRM Business Award, which we believe is recognition of our business excellence and commitment to the advancement of the regional economy.”
