Qatar to Develop 'Port Sudan', the Largest Port on the Red Sea


Sudanese Minister of Transport Makkawi Awad said that his country agreed with Qatar to establish the largest port in the Red Sea coast amid growing cooperation between the two countries in many fields.

He told in a session of the Sudanese parliament that Qatar intends to develop the port "Port Sudan" to be the largest container port to serve Sudan and its neighbours, Al Jazeera reported.

The Sudanese official dismissed the reports about the port, in some media outlets, linking it to the Dubai Ports Company as rumour.

The Qatari Finance Minister H E Ali Sharif Al-Emadi visited the Sudanese capital of Khartoum recently, where he met with President Omar al-Bashir and discussed economic relations between the two countries.

Sudanese Finance Minister Mohammed Osman said he had held talks with his Qatari counterpart and signed many agreements for joint projects in various fields that would push the Sudan economy forward.

For his part, the Qatari minister said that his country continues to contribute significantly to support various developmental projects to build roads, bridges and dams in Sudan.

The amount of Qatari investments in Sudan is estimated at more than $3.8 billion, according to the Sudanese Ministry of Investment. (The Peninsula)
