Dubai: DP World will be part of the UK Government’s Transport Advisory Group as the country steps up its plans to negotiate trade deals.
The group will provide industry experience and strategic expertise. The talks are entering a crucial stage.
“We are looking forward to working with the UK Government to help global trade to and from the UK which will benefit our customers across the supply chain,” said Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and CEO, DP World.
