Milaha, Qatar’s leading maritime transport and logistics conglomerate, has participated in the Qatar Maritime and Logistics Summit, a platform that brings together leading industry players, experts, and policymakers to discuss the changing dynamics of transport hubs around the world.
The three-day event kicked off on February 18 at the Sheraton Grand Doha Resort and Convention Hotel under the patronage of HE Sheikh Khalid Bin Khalifa Bin Abdulaziz Al Thani, Qatar’s Prime Minister and Minister of Interior.
The summit was hosted by the Ministry of Transport and Communications in partnership with Mwani Qatar, the entity responsible for managing the nation’s sea ports and shipping terminals, and was organized by Lloyd's List Intelligence, a leading business information service dedicated to the global maritime community.
Participants discussed the evolution of global transport hubs and touched on the financial, technological, safety, and security issues currently shaping the transportation industry.
Qatar’s leading entities in the field showcased the country’s financial and policy commitment to smart transportation, and outlined recommendations for the agenda of the next Qatar Maritime and Logistics Summit.
