A high-ranking delegation from the Sultanate of Oman representing ports, maritime transport, logistics and free zones sectors recently visited the Hamad Port.

This comes as part of a visit by the delegation to Qatar, which also included the Ruwais Port. The two sides discussed ways of enhancing joint cooperation, trade and economic relations between the two countries.

The delegation comprised representatives of the Asayad Group, National Ferries Company, Duqm Port, Sohar Port and Free Zone, Salalah Free Zone Company, Salalah Port Services Company and Oman International Container Terminal.

The delegation was received by Captain Abdulla al-Khanji, CEO, Qatar Ports Management Company (Mwani Qatar) besides a number of other senior officials.

A presentation was made on Hamad Port highlighting its stages of construction, progress of the remaining phases and future plans set by the Ministry of Transport and Communications to strengthen the world scale facility as well as Qatar’s drive to becoming a major regional trade hub.

The delegation then toured Hamad Port. They were briefed on port facilities, services, piers, container stations and other capabilities that characterise the port which is Qatar's main gateway to world trade.

Captain al-Khanji stressed on the importance of the Omani delegation’s visit, which will solidify the joint cooperation between Qatar and Oman, especially in the fields of ports, maritime transport, logistics and free zones.

Mwani Qatar continues its efforts to build strong and sustainable partnerships with ports, shipping and logistics operators to support domestic market stability and contribute to achieve Qatar National Vision 2030 goals, he noted.

The Omani delegation also toured Al Ruwais port and got an insight into the port's facilities.

Al-Ruwais Port is located at the northern tip of Qatar. It is dedicated to commercial sailboats and supply vessels. The port receives various types of commercial goods and serves as an additional outlet for the promotion of regional trade and the revival of the economy of the northern part of Qatar.
