Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 01 April, 2019:   As part of its efforts to support the UAE’s education system DP World, UAE Region unveiled its first book, the “DP World Success Story”, to be used in government and private schools as an introduction to logistics and global trade. 

The book was launched by Mohammed Al Muallem, CEO and Managing Director of DP World, UAE Region at a ceremony held at Raffles School International in Dubai. 

It includes details of how the global supply chain works and is aimed at students between grades six to ten. Using creative storytelling, it tells the story of Saeed, a young publisher, who manages to ship over five million copies of a book from the UAE to different Arab countries.

Mohammed Al Muallem, CEO and Managing Director, DP World, UAE Region, said:
“As our first official book, DP World Success Story helps broaden the horizons of our children so they can learn about trade and explore career options.  Providing them with a broader outlook while in school will help them choose different career paths later in life. 

“March 2019 has been designated the Month of Reading, so it was an ideal time to launch the book which also shows how important national assets such Jebel Ali Port, Jebel Ali Free Zone, and other related facilities are key to the economic health of our nation.”

The book’s release is part of DP World’s Global Education Programme, launched in 2016 that seeks to introduce children to the world of port operations, logistics, and other related fields using DP World volunteers, the programme aims to engage with 34,000 children between the ages of 8-14 by 2020 across its global network of 40 countries and has already been delivered in India, Senegal, the UK, Argentina, and the Philippines.
