Abdulkareem M Al Masabi, Vice President – Ports Operations, Abu Dhabi, said that looking at the year-on-year double digit growth in all cargo sectors that Abu Dhabi Ports witnessed in 2015, the company is confident about its growth prospects in 2016, despite new challenges in global economy.
“Delma Port’s infrastructure is being upgraded to include a ferry terminal and a marina with 160-boat capacity, improving service offerings to the community, encouraging water sports and stimulating local and regional tourism prospects,” Al Masabi pointed out.
The company is working in cooperation with Tourism
