President Mnangagwa met with a three-member delegation from DP World, one of the world’s major maritime terminal operators, which is owned by the government of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and is in Zimbabwe to set up logistical projects and a dry port.

The DP World delegation indicated interest in developing a new service and product for the country that would be sold internationally.

Their visit comes after the government teamed with DP World officials in Dubai in October last year to continue boosting collaboration in infrastructure development, which includes road, railway, tolling, airport, and inland marine business potential.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, the Ruler of Dubai, is also the Vice-President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates.
