The Rt Hon Lord Mandelson tours At the Top, Burj Khalifa




Dubai, UAE; February 15, 2010: The Right Honourable Lord Peter Mandelson, UK’s First Secretary of State, Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and Lord President of the Council, toured At the Top, Burj Khalifa the world’s highest observatory deck with an outdoor terrace on Level 124 of Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building.

The Rt Hon Lord Mandelson was accompanied on the tour by Mr Abdulla Lahej, Executive Director, Dubai Project Management, Emaar Properties, the developer of Burj Khalifa.

The Rt Hon Lord Mandelson spent nearly 45 minutes At the Top, taking in the impressive views of Dubai from the towering heights. He was also briefed on the making of the tower, and enjoyed the At the Top journey that offered insights on Dubai’s heritage and Burj Khalifa’s towering position among global high-rises.

Mr Lahej said: “The Rt Hon. Lord Mandelson has been at the forefront of promoting global trade ties through multilateral partnerships in addition to being one of the ardent champions in fighting poverty and addressing the various challenges of the developing world.”

He added: “Burj Khalifa is a towering spectacle on what humanity can achieve through global collaboration, and we are privileged to host such a distinguished global leader on the tour of At the Top. His visit to Dubai and Burj Khalifa also has great symbolic value too highlighting the need for powerful partnerships and collaborative ventures in promoting global growth.”

Just post a low res picture.
that way they won't have a high res picture.

What I meant was that it would take an extremely long time (too long for anyone to attempt it, unless they REALLY want to claim it as theirs) for someone to edit your photo.

I was wondering whether or not anyone had ever taken Peter Mandelson up the Burj Khalifa.

Now we know!

must say that after the comments of his Lordship from the day before about Dubai's debt, is not surprising that he wasn't accompanied by local lords to Burj Khalifa

It is a shame, but people do need to watermark their images these days.

I won't upload these days without a watermark,

Even insignificant images to the general public, like the ones fury is interest in.

Sorry..
