    The MoU was signed by Mr. Abdullah Al Hameli, Acting CEO of ADT and Capt. JU Weiping, Director and General Manager of CSP-Abudhabi and was witnessed by Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, Chairman of ADT and CEO  of Abu Dhabi Ports and Captain Xu Lirong, Chairman of China Cosco Shipping Corporation Limited.

    Abdullah Al Hameli, acting CEO of ADT comments: "The signing of this MoU with CSP-Abudhabi is of key importance, not only to our two companies, but  to the future success of Khalifa Port and our customers, the Abu Dhabi and UAE trade. Through close collaboration, we aim to significantly support the increase in contribution to the GDP growth of Abu Dhabi. This will be done in full support of the Abu Dhabi leadership vision and we  expect that this agreement will serve as a spring board for jointly achieving new levels of excellence. I have no doubt that our work together will deliver admirable results well into the future".

    "We congratulate CSP – Abu Dhabi on the official Inauguration of their facility and stand ready to shape the future and new face of the regional maritime industry together," he added.
