That’s why, we appreciate the value of Breakbulk Middle East on emphasizing the importance of UAE’s collaboration with Saudi Arabia to further enhance the maritime sector. The maritime sector still has tremendous potential and promising opportunities by building ideal clusters that serve the overall economy growth cycle.”

A well-structured agenda for industry leaders

One of the major topics of the event’s agenda is emphasizing the diversification in Saudi Arabia and its Vision 2030.

As the first privately owned and operated port in the Middle East, King Abdullah Port has become an example of a successful collaboration between the public and private sectors; stimulating the logistics and maritime trade sector for raising competitiveness in the Kingdom. In addition to the fact that the Kingdom is one of the largest economies in the world and is a member of the Group of 20 countries; the  King Abdullah Port helps to accelerate the export and import capabilities in the Kingdom, handling a major amount of breakbulk, with cargo including steel, cement and timber.”

The combined GDP of the two countries is about $1.1 trillion, equal to about 70 percent of GCC GDP and 43 percent of the combined economies of the 22 members of the Arab League. Both countries have thriving economies and ambitious future projects in the pipeline. We believe that Breakbulk Middle East 2019 will help decision makers and other industry key players explore the emerging trends in the breakbulk industry and project cargo business. We are looking forward for our participation to discuss effective strategies to future-proof the sector.”
