The WZCCME Team comprising Porus Guzder – President; Firdaus Irani – Chapter Chair; Nowshir Engineer – Business Development Director (WZCCME) ; Cyrus Debara – Youth Director (WZCCME); Kashmira Kotwal – Treasurer; and Wahbeez Wankadia – Secretary after a brief introduction of themselves, highlighted the twin objectives of hosting a game changer program for our community members worldwide, that successfully redefined travel and tourism for families and leisure-cum commerce for businessmen.

Meher Bhesania, the founding director of WZCCME, speaking on the World Expo 2020 said, the Expo is expected to bring in 20 Dubai million visitors to Dubai in 2020. The government is investing heavily in infrastructure projects that includes the expansion of roads, Dubai Metro lines and airports.
Dubai’s theme of “Connecting Minds and Creating Future” with sub themes – Mobility, Opportunity and Sustainability, is set to create a new bench mark in the history of World Expos. She added, “the Dubai Pravasi
Yatra program in a way was also a salute to the Zoroastrians living in the GCC region, who came without any connections, braved difficulties and ultimately succeeded in their respective trades and professions.” While wishing a pleasant stay to all the delegates, she extended a hearty welcome to those who were on a business trip and said, “May this trip prove to be a turning point in each one’s life, just as Africa proved to be a turning point in the life of Gandhiji who began his journey as a common man and ended up being addressed by many of his followers as Mahatma”.

In a short span of four days the delegates saw the iconic landmarks such as the Burj Khalifa – the tallest tower in the world, the Dancing Fountains, the Palm, The Atlantis, Burj Al Arab, the Museum, Gold Souk and more… The evenings included the enjoyable Dhow Cruise, the Desert Safari and dinner theatre with Laughter Therapy Comedy Play at the Sh. Rashid Auditorium, attended by 700 businessmen and professionals. Be they millionaires, billionaires or youth they all laughed till the end. The Silly Point Productions team received rave reviews on their debut performance in Dubai.
