7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

Dubai’s Events Se­cu­rity Com­mit­tee has met to dis­cuss plans for the New Year cel­e­bra­tions. The meet­ing, which was led by Bri­gadier Ab­dul­lah Ali Al Ghaithi, re­viewed safety ar­range­ments for the event, which is topped off with the fire­works dis­play at the Burj Khal­ifa. “We must all be one hand in see­ing that this big event is staged safely, and we have to learn lessons from the past to avoid any neg­a­tive as­pects,” Al Ghaithi added. Al Ghaithi said traf­fic man­age­ment re­mains one of the big­gest chal­lenges. Last year’s cel­e­bra­tions were marred by a fire that en­gulfed the Ad­dress Down­town.
