HAMAD PORT QATAR'S RE-EXPORT HUB
According to market experts in the country, having started several direct shipping lines from the newly-opened Hamad Port to major sea ports in India, Pakistan and Turkey, and nearly a dozen more destinations in the pipeline, Qatar will soon tap the port's ‘re-exporting potential'.
Ranjeev Menon, Group CEO of GWC, said that Qatar's state-of-the-art port is certainly going to act as a catalyst to the country's economic diversification.
“Hamad Port's strong capabilities, modern facilities, and advanced systems are leading to position Qatar as a re-export hub in the region, increasing the volume of trade between Qatar and the rest of the world. The port will allow private sector businessmen to increase the flow of goods to and from the country, facilitating both trade and advancing entrepreneurship for the savvy trader.”
He added: “Qatar has witnessed multiple improvements and innovations in this field, some being the PPP projects awarded by the government. GWC Bu Sulba Warehousing Park is a successful example of modern government developmental strategies, and private sector's deploying international standards and local knowledge to its best application.”
