Ukraine's Infrastructure Ministry is to hold talks with top managers of Hutchison Ports, a leading global port operator owning ports in 25 countries, on October 13, Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan has said on Facebook.
He said that on October 13, DP World Chairman and CEO Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem will arrive to Ukraine. The group manages 77 logistic terminals (marine and continental) and 50 adjacent companies in 40 countries on six continents. It is a large global port operator.
"We hope that they will soon enter the Ukrainian market," the minister said.
He also said that he decided jointly with volunteers to popularise electric cars and provide state help to develop them.
P&O Maritime, a subsidiary of DP World, earlier said that the company is ready to invest in the development of tugboats of Odesa Maritime Merchandise Port. The issue was discussed at a meeting of Ahmed Bin Sulayem and Omelyan in Dubai.
