New port terminal will stimulate trade in Republic of Congo

Global facilitator of trade, logistics and industry AD Ports Group, has signed a Head of Terms (HoT) with the Ministry of International Cooperation and Promotion of Public Private Partnership of the Republic of Congo, for a new multipurpose terminal in Pointe-Noire in the Republic of Congo. 

Under the HoT, AD Ports Group has the exclusive right to invest in the development, operation, and management of the New Mole Port that will handle containers, general cargo, break-bulk and other types of cargo.

Furthermore, the Group will provide the new facility with digital services and technology solutions to enhance its efficiency including design, implementation and operation of a single-window, software development, digital architecture, business analytics, digital operations support and digital transformation.

According to Capt. Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, Managing Director and Group CEO of AD Ports Group, says that the there is significant potential for developing a multipurpose terminal at the Port of Pointe Noire, particularly given the port’s key role in the energy sector.

The HoT agreement runs for one year from the date of signing and could lead to a concession agreement subject to technical, legal, commercial, and environmental due diligence.

Pointe Noire is the main commercial centre of the Republic of the Congo, and its port plays a key role in the economy and development of the nation and wider region.

Executives are confident that the collaboration will help stimulate trade and enhance connectivity for the Republic of the Congo, which is pursuing a new National Development Plan (NDP) focusing on economic diversification and high, resilient, and inclusive growth.

Denis-Christel Sassou Nguesso, Minister of International Cooperation and Promotion of Public Private Partnership of the Republic of Congo, says that the AD Ports Group has quickly developed an outstanding reputation for the development of advanced, innovation-enabled port and maritime facilities.

“Their experience and global network will no doubt add significant value to our efforts to make the New Mole Port in Pointe Noire one of the best performing ports on the central west coast of the African continent.”
