PORT OF HASTINGS DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY (POHDA) OFFICIALS WELCOMED AT ADPC’S SITE OFFICE IN TAWEELAH
Officials from Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC), the master developer of ports and industrial zones, have welcomed a delegation from the Port of Hastings Development Authority (PoHDA), Australia, at ADPC’s site office in Taweelah.
It was a first time visit for the PoHDA delegates who were invited on a tour to see the high-tech visitor center as well as Khalifa Port, ADPC’s flagship port.
Besides touring the premises, the presentation “Lessons Learned” – held by Waleed Al Tamimi, was part of the agenda which allowed both parties to come closer while sharing knowledge and experience in regards to the current maritime industry. The delegation also discussed Khalifa Port and Kizad’s role in relation to the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030.
The PoHDA is an authority of the Government of Victoria, Australia, and is responsible for the development and management of the Port of Hastings, located in Western Port Bay, approximately 72 kilometers to the south east of Melbourne. The Port is expected to be developed into a major new container port in competition with the Port of Melbourne, Australia’s busiest container port.
