Dubai ranked among leading maritime hubs


Dubai is the world's fifth-best maritime hub.

That's according to Baltic Exchange's latest International Shipping Centre Development Index (ISCDI), which has slotted the emirate in fifth place for the second year in a row.

Officials say the ranking reflects Dubai's state-of-the-art maritime infrastructure and logistics capabilities.

Singapore topped the list for 2019 followed by Hong Kong, London and Shanghai.
