The Annual Report shares some of the major agreements signed in 2021, including a 35-year concession agreement with CMA CGM for a new AED 570 million ($155 million) terminal at Khalifa Port.
Amongst other achievements, AD Ports Group partnered up with the Aqaba Development Corporation to drive the development of tourism, logistics, transport, and digital infrastructure within the Jordanian port city.
AD Ports has generated 21 per cent of all non-oil related GDP in the Emirate, according to the report, and empowered more than 212,000 jobs in the United Arab Emirates.
