March 2020

King Abdullah Port, the first privately owned, developed and operated port in the Middle East, concluded its participation as platinum sponsor of Breakbulk Middle East (BBME) for the third year in a row.

The fifth edition of the annual event, which was held at Dubai World Trade Center under the patronage of the UAE Minister of Infrastructure Development and Chairman of the Federal Transport Authority – Land & Maritime, Dr. Abdullah Belhaif Al Nuaimi, attracted several Arab ministers and senior government officials.

Khaled Shalha, Marketing Head at King Abdullah Port, delivered welcoming remarks at the event, and expressed his thanks and appreciation to Al Nuaimi for extending his steadfast support to this important annual event. He stated: “The continued association between King Abdullah Port and Breakbulk Middle East creates exciting opportunities to build connections, strengthen relationships and learn more about the latest developments in the breakbulk sector.”

Shalha continued: “The Kingdom has embarked on a remarkable transformation journey inspired by the goals of Vision 2030, the government’s ambitious roadmap to sustainable success, and we at King Abdullah Port are proud to support these efforts through our state-of-the-art maritime logistics capabilities. Since its official inauguration by the Crown Prince HRH Prince Mohammad bin Salman in February 2019, King Abdullah Port has established its position as a leading local/regional logistics hub. Perhaps the most prominent example of our complimentary role for government agencies in the Kingdom is the MoU signed by Mawani and the Economic Cities and Special Zones Authority a few days ago, which confirmed that government agencies and the private sector in the Kingdom continue to work together to achieve strategic national objectives, including maintaining regional and global leadership for Saudi ports and promoting the Kingdom’s position as a key driver for global trade.”
