The Minister inaugurated a container freight capacity developed project as well as the commissioning of 6.25MW out of 10MW solar power plant.

In addition, the Minister laid the foundation stone for the reconstruction of several old berths in the inner harbor. With this project, the port’s capacity will increase to 6 million tonnes.
