Egypt’s Damietta Port Authority has received an Italian delegation and hosted talks regarding LNG-related cooperation.
Walid Awad, DPA Chairman, received an Italian delegation from the Italian port of Bari, the Italian Chamber of Commerce, and a number of Italian logistics companies to discuss the possibility of cooperation in the field of supplying ships with LNG and necessary infrastructure, in addition to sharing information about the potential of the LNG facilities operating in the port of Damietta.
The meeting was attended by representatives of the port community and a number of agencies and companies operating in the port. Awad explained that supplying ships with LNG is compatible with the efforts exerted by the Ministry of Transport to convert Egyptian ports into green ports for the positive impact on the surrounding environment.
It is worth mentioning that this visit came in the wake of the second forum of Egyptian-Italian dialogue, organised by the Maritime Transport Sector and the Italian Embassy in Cairo.
