The cooperation between AD Ports Group and CMEC GROUP is expected to lead to the growth of business networks and resources.

The two parties are expected provide comprehensive solutions and services to each other’s projects as per requirements, including, but not limited to, survey, design, building, operation and maintenance. 

Both companies will prioritise each other’s participation in project procurement and choose each other as project partners. 

China is among the UAE’s top commercial partners, with bilateral commerce between China and the UAE exceeding $64 billion during the first eight months of 2022, an increase of nearly 28 per cent for the same period in 2021.

Additionally, around 6,000 Chinese businesses currently operate in the UAE, with a sizable Chinese population working primarily in the infrastructure and energy sectors.

AD Ports Group and CMEC GROUP’s collaboration marks a significant opportunity for the global industry and infrastructure development to capitalise on the predicted further growth of China-UAE trade, with both companies poised to bring in a new era of innovation and prosperity to the regions they operate in.

This time last month, AD Ports Group signed a 50-year concession agreement with Karachi Port Trust (KPT), the Pakistani federal government organisation in charge of the Port of Karachi’s operations.

More recently, AD Ports Group and Premier Marine Engineering Services LLC (Premier Marine), a UAE-based shipyard company, announced the formation of a new joint venture, SAFEEN Drydocks.
