Aden, – Preliminary procedures for handing over management of container and Mu'lla ports in Aden to Dubai international company are now underway.

Yemen Times has learnt that the negotiations on building an air shipment village and developing ship quays are already finished.

Financial analysts think that, if the operation procedure is concluded according to the plans of the new company, this will boost greatly navigation activity at the Yemeni ports.

They depend in their analysis on the immense capacities of Dubai International Company in addition to the experience and relations that would possibly lure new marine lines to Aden and its container port.

It is worth mentioning that Dubai International had won the bid of developing, managing and operating Aden port and container port in the free zone at the beginning of June2005.
