High Level Delegation from Argentina Visits Jebel Ali Port (UAE)

A high level delegation from Argentina led by the Vice President, His Excellency Amado Boudou, today visited DP World headquarters in Jebel Ali and was welcomed by Mohammed Sharaf, Group Chief Executive Officer, DP World.

Accompanied by  H.E. Ruben Caro, Argentina’s Ambassador to the UAE, the delegation comprised Romano Eduardo, Personal Secretary of Vice President, Sergio Poggi, Press Chief, Marcelo Damiani, Security Chief, Sabino Vaca Narvaja, Director General of International Relations of the Argentine Chamber of Senators, Ana Inigo Carrera, Protocol Coordinator, and Maria Arrieta, Trade Commissioner of the Embassy of Argentina.

The visiting dignitaries toured DP World’s flagship Jebel Ali Port accompanied by Mr. Sharaf and a number of senior DP World officials including Rashid Abdulla, Senior Vice President Global Operations and Butti Al Jumairi, Director Government Relations. They were briefed on the sophisticated technology and innovation that has driven the port’s operational efficiencies, as well as its major expansion projects, including the recent addition of 1 million TEU (twenty-foot equivalent container units) to Terminal 2 capacity, and the ongoing development of Terminal 3 that will add a further 4 million TEU bringing the port’s capacity to 19 million TEU in 2014.

The delegation listened to a presentation on Jebel Ali’s role as a gateway to the region and DP World’s activities across its global portfolio of more than 65 terminals, including new developments underway in India, Africa, Europe, South America and the Middle East.

Talks between the two sides covered issues of mutual interest and possible opportunities for further enhancing cooperation.

Mohammed Sharaf,  Group Chief Executive Officer, DP World, said: “The Vice-President’s visit further cements the already strong relations DP World has with Argentina where we operate the largest container terminal in the country. As a vibrant, emerging market, Argentina has great potential and we are committed to playing a vital role in its economic development and in the local community. We thank the Government of Argentina for their continuous support and look forward to further cooperation.”

DP World operates Terminales Rio de la Plata (TRP), the largest container terminal in Argentina, located in the heart of downtown Buenos Aires. The terminal handles container and general cargo, and cruise vessels.

In March 2011, DP World inaugurated TRP’s Quinquela Martin Cruise Terminal, South America’s largest and most modern cruise terminal, which covers over 12,300 sq m, and has the capacity to handle 600,000 passengers a year.
