Through close collaboration, we aim to significantly support the increase in contribution to the GDP growth of Abu Dhabi. This will be done in full support of the Abu Dhabi leadership vision and we  expect that this agreement will serve as a spring board for jointly achieving new levels of excellence. I have no doubt that our work together will deliver admirable results well into the future".

    "We congratulate CSP – Abu Dhabi on the official Inauguration of their facility and stand ready to shape the future and new face of the regional maritime industry together," he added.
