DP World has reiterated the company’s commitment to enabling India’s growth and economic development through its operations in the country, where it supports over 32% of India’s container trade, during the Indian PM’s visit to the country.

DP World is a market leader in Indian container terminal operations and has the largest portfolio of ports along the Indian coastline. The network includes terminals in Gujarat (Mundra), Maharashtra (Nhava Sheva), Kerala (Cochin), Tamil Nadu (Chennai) and Andhra Pradesh (Visakhapatnam).

Building on the historic ties and strong friendly relations between the UAE and India, DP World has established a strong market position in India, shaping the future of the maritime terminals industry and investing over US $2 billion. Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, DP World chairman welcomed the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the UAE, saying that as the UAE’s second-largest trading partner, and with the UAE being India’s third largest trading partner, the two countries shared a close relationship.

Trade between the two nations reached US $60-billion last year.
