Abu Dhabi Ports and the Mauritius Ports Authority (MPA) have signed an agreement to pool their combined expertise to enhance the maritime sector across the Indian Ocean.

Under the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), Abu Dhabi Ports and MPA will explore areas of collaboration between the public and private sectors, as well as how to ensure the safety and security of passengers, crew members, vessels and port facilities.

The agreement will see the two ports research the most effective use of tugboats, as well as training initiatives for deck and engine officers.

The two organisations will also work together on the cruise industry sector by helping Port Louis Harbour to position itself in the Indian Ocean Circuit and to tap into potential cruise visitors from the Arabian Peninsula. Additionally, the parties aim to attract more cruise lines to the region and explore new routes such as UAE – Indian Ocean and Southern and Eastern Africa.

“Our collaboration plays a pivotal role in accelerating global growth opportunities for both parties. Trade across the Indian Ocean has been a key bridge between East and West throughout history, and Abu Dhabi’s strategic location makes us the ideal partner for organisations in both parts of the world,” Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, CEO of Abu Dhabi Ports, said.
