DP World Chairman HE Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem met with the Maldivian President His Excellency Abdulla Yameen Abdul ‎Gayoom and Minister of Economic Development His Excellency Mohamed Saeed, in Malé and during the meeting discussed potential areas of cooperation and ways in which economic relations could be enhanced to higher levels.

“The Maldives have tremendous potential for growth and there is a close relationship between our two countries. I am honoured to have had this opportunity to discuss how the relationship between our countries can be further strengthened for the benefit of the Maldives and Dubai.”

The meeting was held following a visit from HE Mohamed Saeed to Dubai last week, where he met with HE Bin Sulayem to initiate talks on future cooperation. Additionally, a high level customs delegation from Maldives visited two weeks ago DP World and Jebel Ali Free Zone and Customs.
