Chairman of the Suez Canal Authority (SCA) and the Suez Canal Economic Zone (SCEZ) Mohab Mamish signed a memorandum of understanding with the Portuguese Port of Sines.

The MoU is intended to strengthen parternships and exchange expertise and information regarding the field of ports, according to a statement released by the SCEZ on Thursday.

The statement continued on to highlight that the agreement was signed during a meeting between Mamish and Portugal's Minister of Sea Ana Paula Vitorino. The meeting was held in order to discuss boosting bilateral cooperation in the port sector.

During the meeting, Mamish reviewed a number of key mega-national projects implemented by the country, including the underway Suez Canal development corridor.

Furthermore, the statement outlined that Mamish invited the Portuguese minister to visit the SCEZ and updated her on the mega-projects currently under construction in the sea, noting that these are being carried out in the industrial zone in Port Said.

Mamish is currently on an official visit to Portugal to take part in the Ocean Meeting International Conference in Lisbon, upon invitation from Vitorino.
