The Eyptian Minister of Transport has paid a visit to the Port of Felixstowe.

His Excellency Dr Saad Mohamed Elgioshy, a member of the Egyptian cabinet, held talks with executives from Hutchison Port Holdings (HPH), owner of the Port of Felxistowe, and visited the CSCL Globe, one of the world’s largest container ships.

The visit followed Dr Elgioshy’s attendance at the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) executive council elections in London.

Clemence Cheng, chief executive of the Port of Felixstowe and managing director of HPH’s Europe division, said: “We were delighted to welcome Dr Elgioshy to the Port of Felixstowe and to congratulate him on Egypt’s appointment to the IMO executive council. While he was at the port we were able to show him some of the recent investments we have made at Felixstowe to increase capacity and the service we offer our customers.”

Darrius Teo, managing director of the Alexandria International Container Terminal in Egypt, who was also present during the visit, added: “HPH has operated the Alexandria International Container Terminal in Egypt since 2005 when we were the first foreign investor in the port.
