“Abu Dhabi Ports values the collaboration with the IBPC that represents top Indian businessmen in the UAE who contribute heavily to the UAE economy," he said.
Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, CEO of Abu Dhabi Ports, said Indian businesses based in the UAE were "keen to expand their business."
"We are happy to introduce the unique offerings of Kizad and Khalifa Port to them,” Al Shamisi said. “Kizad’s outstanding access to markets, world-class infrastructure and dedicated investor support – with Khalifa Port at its doorstep, will prove attractive to their businesses and expansion plans. I am confident that our offerings have the potential to support their efforts to boost trade ties between India and the UAE.”
