Over the decades, Dubai's leadership and its people have worked together to transform the emirate into one of the world's most business oriented destinations. Dubai South is the emirate's flagship project that symbolizes Dubai's vision to become a city of happiness. By bringing the individuals, companies and putting their needs as our main focus, Dubai South is re-inventing the ecosystem and we are delighted that RheinBrücke along with Epicor is partnering with SmartWorld to drive value to Dubai South's customers and beyond and we look forward to a successful collaboration that benefits all parties," said His Excellency Khalifa Al Zaffin, executive chairman, Dubai Aviation City Corporation & Dubai South.
