A senior policeman has praised the achievements of volunteers who helped ensure the smooth running of Dubai 2003. Speaking during a press conference at the Dubai Police headquarters yesterday, Major Gen Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, Dubai Police Chief and head of the Security Committee of the conference, spoke of his pride at seeing people work hard towards a common goal. The police and the armed forces were said to have cooperated closely to make the event a success. Major Gen Dhahi made the comments while hailing the achievements of the security committee which successfully handled the world financial meetings.

"During the event, I saw many volunteers from different departments and ministries in Dubai who had taken the initiative and decided to work and help the delegates for no returns," the Dubai Police Chief said. "These volunteers worked daily for 12 hours with a smile on their faces to help the delegates and participants. It really made me proud." He added that the main reason behind the success of the event is that committee members heeded the advice of President His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and learnt from his spirit of teamwork and cooperation.

"Security is the foundation of development and prospects of any country. We were keen to implement the best security measures for the safety of our delegates. "When comparing our preparations to the other countries where the meetings were held before, we can confidently say that this year was the best in terms of preparation in the history of the IMF and World Bank Group meetings. This is what we have been told by the delegates and Chief of the World Bank Group." (The Gulf News)
