*High-level Mwani delegation tours Mundra, one of India's largest ports
Qatar Ports Management Company (Mwani Qatar) is seeking to enhance cooperation and investment opportunities with Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone, the main developer and operator of ports in India.
A high-level Mwani delegation led by CEO Abdulla al-Khanji recently visited India and discussed opportunities for partnership in the fields of ports, maritime transport, logistics and food security.
The discussion included the possibility of launching new direct lines between Hamad Port and ports operated by Adani Ports in India. This is part of the Ministry of Transport and Communications’ plan to strengthen the status of Hamad Port, which is Qatar's main gateway to world trade as a vital commercial centre in the region.
In addition, the Qatari delegation toured Mundra Port, one of the largest ports in India. They learned about the port's possibilities, operations, activities and services it provides.
Al Khanji praised the “good and fruitful results” of the visit and said it will open up new horizons to enhance Qatar's foreign investments in ports, maritime transport, logistics and food security. It will also support Mwani Qatar's plan to attract more direct shipping lines to Hamad Port, turning the port into a regional centre for transshipment in the region.
Al-Khanji stressed the importance of this visit in enhancing Mwani Qatar’s presence as a regional and international leading integrated port and logistics services provider, thus contributing to economic diversification away from oil and gas and supporting the Qatar National Vision 2030.
