This part of the Empty Quarter has attended many such events and hopes, as always, that there will be as much action as there is discussion. The sessions which catches the eye is the second session on day 1 on destruction. Many detained shipments of counterfeit product are alleged to have been exported rather than seized and destroyed in the UAE. This part of the Empty Quarter expects this session to be interesting.
