Dubai Duty Free officially launched its Chinese New Year celebrations on January 22 in Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport.
The morning festivities were attended by Dubai Duty Free management and staff, headed by Executive Vice Chairman & CEO Colm McLoughlin, Chief Operating Officer Ramesh Cidambi and Executive Vice President Corp. Services Salah Tahlak, along with representatives from the Chinese Consulate in Dubai, including (Acting) Consul General Ms Tan Li and Vice Consul Wang Chen, and some Chinese media.
