The visit was as a result of the cooperation between the Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) and Mondia FZLLC Company, representative of Bertelsmann Damenkreisfahrt in Dubai.
DTCM Manager Missions Mr. Hamad bin Mejren who received her said: “This invitation was as part of the department’s strategy to market the emirate as a model destination for investors and businessmen.”
