In addition, the strategic location at the gateway to Middle East, North Africa and Asia helps in establishing business ties with companies within and outside the region. We are delighted that a well-known company such as Mubarak Marine has chosen decided to further their operations from the city, this will definitely fuel the growth of the repair and maintenance sector and also direct attention to the important role played by the City in facilitating maritime activity both regionally & globally.”
