P&G gets Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Business Award

Procter & Gamble (P&G) was recognized at the recently concluded Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum (MRM) Business Awards held in Dubai.
P&G, which received the award in the re-export category, was commended for its performance in developing strong leadership, its history of innovation, for promoting a customer-focused mindset and comprehensive talent management programs and for the robustness of its corporate governance and CSR initiatives.
The award was presented by Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the deputy ruler of Dubai and received by Yassin Attas, communications director Middle East, North Africa and Pakistan at P&G.
P&G entered the Arabian Peninsula in 1956 and established its first manufacturing facility in Jeddah in 1965. In 2000, P&G established its operations in the UAE. Two years later, in 2002, P&G relocated to the Jebel Ali Free Zone to service its various manufacturing operations across the region. P&G employs 1,250 people across the region, of which 60 percent are GCC nationals.
The Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Business Award is the highest level of recognition for business excellence that an organization in the UAE can achieve. The Award has been introduced to recognize and celebrate the success of organizations, which have been contributing to the economic development of the UAE.
“We’re honored to receive this award from the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Business Performance Program,” said Al Rajwani, VP and GM for the Arabian Peninsula and Pakistan, Procter & Gamble.
“Our region, the Arabian Peninsula and Pakistan, is an area of increasing importance for P&G globally and we have strived to innovate, to develop and invest in the region for the benefit of our consumers here. Today we are exporting from this region to over 50 countries worldwide,” he added.
