DP World, Kazakhstan work on air, land, sea connectivity
DP World has agreed with the government of Kazakhstan to install its "Port Community System" (PCS) software for this week's Astana Economic Forum.
PCS is an electronic platform developed by DP World that enables quick information exchange between maritime, inland and airports.
DP World Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem said "multimodal connectivity is key to realizing the Kazakhstan President's 'path to the future' vision, which includes the 'Nurly Zhol'" a USD 9 billion infrastructure programme.
He said that "Our experience in the 40 countries where we operate globally is that integrating services makes trade faster, safer and more efficient.”
"That's why these announcements today are important for Kazakhstan, providing smart trade solutions for the country and to increase efficiencies for business."
Kazakhstan "is at the crossroads of Asia and although landlocked President Nursultan Nazarbayev's commitment to improve internal and external connectivity to avoid the 'transporttrap' will propel growth," bin Sulayem said.
