    DP World Chairman discusses future of trade with global leaders at World Economic Forum

    International partnerships to  shape  the  future of world trade  was part of  the agenda at discussions held between DP World Group  Chairman and CEO Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem  and other world leaders on the sidelines of the  World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, the company said in its press release.

    Mr. Bin Sulayem met with  Ukrainian President  Petro Poroshenko , Angolan President  João  Lourenço  and Peruvian Prime Minister  Mercedes Aráoz to  discuss areas of mutual interest and  to explore trade issues and infrastructure opportunities.  Mr . Bin Sulayem outlined  the global trade enabler’s  strategy  to develop complementary sectors  in the global supply chain such as industrial parks, free zones and logistics  to add further value  for all  its stakeholders.  Setting  these  up  across its business  and in new locations around the  world will be a major focus in the coming year. 

    DP World Group Chairman and CEO Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem , said: “ Effective  partnerships in each of the 40 countries where we operate today has been the foundation of  our success and we’re always keen to build  on existing  relationships and open new ones. Our  industry has a lot to look forward to this year and issues such as  trade  agreements ,  the  growth  and influence of emerging economies, economic diversification and tech nological innovation  that will disrupt the way we do business globally. “Peru has been a major part of our operations in South America for some years and the  continent is a key market for us. Africa continues to offer many opportunities to grow our  business there where we already have a sizeable presence. Ukraine has a promising logistics  sector and with the right environment for economic development supported by favourable  foreign and domestic policies, it will  grow  rapidly. ” 

    In Peru,  DP World operates DP World  Callao, the main container terminal of Callao Port which  handles 90% of the country’s total container trade. DP World Peru also  opened  the first smart  logistics centre in Lurin, 40 kilometres south of the capital Lima,  connected through optical  fibres to its terminal at Callao.  The centre delivers information to the port and customs, enabling customers to manage the movement of their cargo using their own electronic devices  and smartphones.  President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko toured DP World’s flagship Jebel Ali Port and Freezone  last year as part of his official visit to the UAE to discuss bilateral cooperation in politics, security  and foreign investment. Discussions focused on ways to grow Ukraine’s maritime and logistics  sector. In 2016, DP World signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the government  of Ukraine to partner on matters of mutual interest. DP World  is already involved in the  Ukrainian Port of Yuzhny through its P&O Maritime subsid iary and  enjoys a strong presence in  the Black Sea region with its Constanta Terminal in Romania, a state - of - the - art facility with  excellent deep - draft access.
