UAE: President of Mozambique Visits Jebel Ali Port

The President of Mozambique, HE Armando Emilio Guebuza recently visited DP World flagship Jebel Ali Port where he was received by Chairman HE Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem and briefed on the supply chain capabilities that have made the port the premier gateway to the entire region and a reliable contributor to the national economy.

The meeting was attended by senior DP World officials including Vice Chairman HE Jamal Majid Bin Thaniah, Group Chief Executive Officer Mohammed Sharaf, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, UAE Region, Mohammed Al Muallem and Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Africa Region, Joost Kruijning, among others.

During their tour of Jebel Ali Port, President Guebuza and his high-level delegation inspected the technology-driven efficiencies that support the gateway facility, a model replicated at DP World Maputo, which serves as the gateway to southern Africa’s vast hinterland, including Botswana, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Swaziland and South Africa’s Gauteng Province.

HE Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Chairman, DP World, said:

DP World is honoured to welcome His Excellency Armando Emilio Guebuza, the President of Mozambique, to Jebel Ali Port. Efficient infrastructure both leads and drives economic sustainability, and both Jebel Ali and Maputo Port are good examples of this. Mozambique has an exciting future and we are committed to contributing even further to improving supply chain efficiency and supporting the expansion of Mozambique’s economy.”

According to Maputo Port Development Company (MPDC), in the last two years the Port of Maputo experienced a 50% rise in the amount of cargo handled, going from 10 million tons in 2010 to 15 million in 2012. MPDC says it aims to grow to 17 million tons in 2013 and to reach 40 million tons by 2020.

DP World holds a 30-year concession to operate the container terminal at the port until 2033, with an option to extend for a further 10 years.
