Spanish Delegation Visits Jebel Ali Port (UAE)

A high-level Spanish delegation led by His Excellency José Manuel Soria López, Minister of Industry, Energy and Tourism, visited Jebel Ali Port and held talks on supply chain efficiencies with officials from DP World, UAE Region, the premier regional marine terminal operator.

The Spanish Minister is currently visiting the United Arab Emirates, where he spoke at the opening ceremony of the Global Energy Forum 2013 held in Dubai.

Minister López and his high-level delegation, which included H.E. José Eugenio Fernández Salarich, Ambassador of Spain to the UAE, H.E. Alberto Nadal, Secretary of State for Energy, and other officials, were welcomed by Abdulla Bin Damithan, Director of Account Management, Commercial Department, DP World, UAE Region.

During their tour of the DP World flagship port the visitors showed deep interest in the technology-driven operational efficiencies at work and were briefed in detail on on-going capacity expansion projects that will add 5 million TEU (twenty-foot equivalent containers) to take total capacity to 19 million TEU by 2014. These include the extension of Terminal 2 adding 1 million TEU and Terminal 3, a massive new development capable of handling 4 million TEU when completed.

Mohammed Al Muallem, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, DP World, UAE region, said:

“Jebel Ali Port has earned its position as the gateway to the region through sustained focus on our customers’ demands for value added services and a carefully-crafted ability to stay ahead of their changing needs. We use this approach, developed and honed at Jebel Ali, throughout our global portfolio. We constantly learn from our partners and supply chain stakeholders and therefore are delighted to welcome the Spanish delegation. The visit also further strengthens the excellent relations between the UAE and Spain.”

Abdulla Bin Damithan, Director of Account Management, Commercial Department, DP World, UAE Region, said:

“As the trade gateway for the UAE and the wider region, we look further to play our key role in providing a seamless access for the Spanish products to a market of more than 2 billion people. Spain has the 13th-largest economy in the world, the fifth-largest in the European Union, and the fourth-largest in the Eurozone, based on nominal GDP comparisons.”
