Delegates from the Kuwait Ports Authority have arrived in the UAE for a two-day visit with DP World to learn from the UAE’s largest and most successful port operations company.
Kuwait Ports Authority’s director general Sheikh Yousef Abdullah Al-Sabah said at a press conference that he was keen to pick up on DP World’s success story and learn from neighbouring Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states.
The delegation travelled to Dubai in response to a personal invitation from chairman of DP World Sultan Ahmad bin Sulayem, who said he wants to share with KPA the latest in the marine, administration, technical, financial and security aspects of port management.
DP World has, over the last 20 years, acquired the rights for 65 commercial ports around the world, and is currently in the top five global port operations companies. Sheikh Yousef said that this achievement was a cause for pride amongst GCC states.
KPA board member Anwar Al-Yassin traveling as part of the delegation agreed that gaining know-how from other GCC neighbours is beneficial, particularly due to DP World’s vast experience in the field.
