Over the past few years, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has recorded multiple successes and achievements, ranking high amongst the most prestigious organisations in the world, and surpassing major European and American utilities.
HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA and Founder and Chairman of WETEX, commended the efforts of partners from the public and private sectors, and sponsors of the 20th WETEX from around the world. He also commended the media for their effective role in supporting the vision and mission of the exhibition.
World Water Day, which is annually celebrated all around the world on 22nd March, is an ideal opportunity to raise awareness about water issues and challenges, and to inspire the public to make a difference and manage water resources sustainably. This is especially important now, in light of the worsening global water security situation and steady population growth. Today, over 663 million people live without water supplies close to their homes. They either spend countless hours or travel long distances to get water, or even face the negative health impacts of using contaminated water.
