The agreement signed between the Karachi Port Trust and the Abu Dhabi Ports Group “aims to strengthen” bilateral relations in the marine and logistic sectors of Pakistan and UAE.

Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar witnessed the signing of the agreement and expressed satisfaction over the growth of exchanges, interaction and cooperation between businesses in Pakistan and the UAE.

Last year in June, AD Ports Group signed an agreement to take over the running of part of Pakistan’s main Karachi docking facility in a deal worth an immediate $220 million.
