DP World Chairman And Panama President Discuss Future Trade

Trade infrastructure development to diversify Panama’s economy and DP World’s international experience in over 40 countries were at the center of discussions held in Dubai yesterday between the global trade enabler’s Group Chairman and CEO Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem and Panamanian President Juan Carlos Varela.

As part of his visit, Mr. Varela was taken on a tour of DP World’s flagship Jebel Ali Port and Free Zone, including Terminal 3, which is among the world’s most productive and technologically advanced, employing surveillance drones and remote-controlled quay cranes that are operated from the safety and comfort of a control room.

A presentation was also delivered on the role that DP World plays in enabling customers to manage the complexities and cut costs in the global supply chain, highlighting the Dubai Logistics Corridor as a model that has helped the port and free zone contribute to over 20% of Dubai’s GDP.
